Shayna Jia

PositionPhD candidate (started in 2014)
Past educationBachelor of Pharmaceutical Science (Honours) at Tianjin University (P.R.China) in 2013
Current projectMy PhD project aims to develop a visible-light-responsive drug delivery system. This system will incorporate a photo-switchable samll molecule with lipid-based lytropic liquid crystalline matrix. The structural change of the samll molecules upon irraidation is expected to disrupt the host lipid packing, hence lead to the release of the encapsulated drug. The project involves the synthesis and characterization of small molecules, the preparation of liquid crystalline matrix, the structural characterization of liquid crystalline matrix using SAXS, the drug release tests.
