A MURDOCH University PhD student is using nanotechnology to aid the treatment of ischemic strokes.

Xuan Le is researching the use of nanotechnology to deliver drugs internally as an alternative to injection and oral drug delivery methods. Part of the research focuses on the design, creation and use of nanoparticles that contain the required drug.

Marisa is a globetrotting freelance writer, journalist and editor with cat for hire (her, not the cat). She is usually based in Melbourne but is currently flouncing around in Perth for a week for the Inaugural 2018 KSP - Varuna Foundation Fellowship. She will be at Melbourne's Continuum and online running a Writers' Bloc course in the coming weeks.
