Boosting Anticancer Selectivity
A smart poly(acrylic) acid shows promise as a carrier to improve anticancer drug action, says Alison Maniego

I’m a PhD student at the University of Western Sydney (UWS) where I also obtained my undergraduate degree. My advisors are Marianne Gaborieau and Patrice Castignolles, and my research focuses on finding the relation between the branched structure of PAA (a pH responsive polymer) and its binding to and delivery of an anticancer drug (cisplatin). At the start of this year, I was awarded the Young Scientist Award lecture in the 7th International Symposium on the Separation and Characterization of Natural and Synthetic Macromolecules. I also received a student prize for International Polymer Meetings from the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, Polymer Division, for this symposium.
