  • Halvtidsseminarium

Xiguo He, Phd Student at the Department of Pharmacy and SweDeliver, presents her work to improve the oral bioavailability of antibiotics using nanoparticles that are stable in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), efficient solubilizers of poorly soluble antibiotics and highly membrane-permeable, with the purpose to increase drug delivery to the systemic circulation.

At the half-time seminar, the following committee will attend:

Linus Sandegren, Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology, Infections and Immunity, Uppsala University.
Hanna Barriga, Research Specialist at Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics Medical Systems Bioengineering, Karolinska Institute.
Johan Engblom, Head of department/Professor of Biomedical Technology at Malmo University.

Researcher bio  Xiguo He holds her master of science degree in pharmaceutical modelling from Uppsala University, 2021. After graduating from the in vitro, in vivo and in silico modelling background, she returned to the Drug Delivery group as a PhD student to begin the journey of engineering nanoparticles for antibiotics. The project is performed in collaboration with Uppsala Antibiotic Center.
