Griebenow group has developed new method to accomplish protein loaded nanoparticles.

Encapsulation of proteins in hydrophobic polymers to generate nanoscale delivery devices is challenging and only few examples have been published. Researchers in the Griebenow group led by graduate student Moraima Morales Cruz have now developed a two-step method based on a nano-precipitation step and a subsequent nano-encapsulation step that is universally applicable (Figure 1). The data will be published shortly in Results in Pharma Science.
