Personal profile


Dr Angus Johnston is an ARC Future Fellow who's work focuses on developing better ways to deliver drugs, making them more therapeutically active and limiting side effects. He has extensive knowledge and expertise in nanomaterials assembly, material characterisation, cellular interactions and advanced imaging techniques.

His group is interested in understanding how nanoengineered materials interact with biological systems. This work involves developing molecular sensors to determine the internalisation, trafficking and local environment that nanoparticles are exposed to in living cells. With a better understudying of how these material interact with cells, we can engineer smarter materials for improved drug and vaccine delivery.
