The layer-by-layer assembly allows to modify the surface properties of drug delivery systems, tuning their biodistribution and targeting capacities. In this work, we explore the advantages of using this technology to develop systems that can decrease interactions with circulating immune cells while effectively target hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in vivo.

Tamara is a postdoctoral researcher at Prof. Paula Hammond’s lab at MIT. Previously, she did her undergraduate and PhD work under the supervision of Prof. Maria Jose Alonso at CiMUS, University of Santiago de Compostela. Her research focuses on harnessing different drug delivery strategies to solve unmet clinical needs. Currently at MIT, her work aims at developing a new delivery system to target hematopoietic stem cells for the treatment of blood disorders.
