Although inhalation aerosols allow a local treatment in respiratory diseases, the rapid clearance of protein therapeutics from the lung implies the requirement to deliver them once daily. This imposes a significant time burden on the patients and might reduce patient compliance and the therapeutic outcome of the treatment. The goal of this project is to develop nanomedicines offering a sustained presence of the protein drug within the lung as well as an ability to localize within a particular sub-compartment of the lung for a targeted effect, that is, either within the lung lining fluid or, within the lung parenchyma.
This 2-year project is funded the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (www.fnrs.be). The project will be performed in collaboration with Dr. Mireille Dumoulin of the Protein Engineering Center of the University of Liège. You will receive a 12 month postdoctoral fellowship with a net allocation ranging from 2 490€ to 2 600€ per month, according to your seniority. The contract will start Sept. 1st 2019 and will be renewable once for a total of 22 months.
