Neutron and X-ray scattering to study the structural dynamics of nano particles in microfluidics system for drug delivery applications

Microfluidics are used as a template to perform an in-flow formation of nanoparticles such as cubosomes and hexasomes, which are being heavily studied at the pharmacology department at the University of Copenhagen. Moreoever, the microfluidic template is designed in a way that allows us as researchers to perform SANS/SAXS (small angle neutron and x-ray scattering) in real time under different conditions (temperatures, flow rates, shear stresses, etc...).

This project is realized throudh collaboration between researchers from Pharma at the University of Copenhagen and the Niels Bohr Institute.
