The Process Engineering of Chinese Traditional Medicine, Ganoderma Lucidum, for Healthcare Engineering.

Research Outline

As a research engineer in the department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London, the fight to convince peers and colleagues of the phenomenon known as Immunotherapy has been constant since Day 1. This particular phenomenon surrounds so many wonderfully mysterious mechanisms and elements such as cell signaling – and indeed it is at this molecular level that the root of many diseases can be targeted most effectively. I chose to dedicate my research to a traditional medicine found in the Far East, investigating methods of compound extraction and delivery to ultimate observe effects on key immune system mechanisms. My endeavours are thus far limited, due to challenges faced in extraction of the compounds. Using nano-sized, natural carriers has been the focus of my latest work with plans to compare fabrication methods and ultimate efficiency rates of both encapsulation and release in a physiological environment.
