My current Research Project: I am focused in bacterial mediated delivery of therapeutics into tumours. We aim to enhance the delivery of therapeutics by tumour-selective, non-invasive bacteria. To achieve this, we are using cell penetrating peptides (CPP) that facilitate the introduction of therapeutics into cancer cells, once they are delivered by the bacteria in the extracellular tumour environment.
