Mining the secrets of lipid nanoparticles using research infrastructures

Hanna Barriga has over 10 years of experience engineering and characterizing lipid systems. Her research focuses on understanding how lipid structures impact nanoparticle performance, which includes developing lipid nanoparticles for RNA delivery. We got the opportunity to talk to Hanna to learn how she uses research infrastructure to take her research towards the applied biology of drug targeting. 

A central role for research infrastructures in life science 

Development of national research infrastructure is of utmost importance to Sweden’s as a strong life science nation. The InfraLife project gathers Sweden’s large research infrastructures SciLifeLab, MAX IV and ESS. The report Stärkt fokus på framtidens forskningsinfrastruktur (SOU 2021:65) has gone through a referral process and during the government’s life science office´s yearly life science conference one of the sessions posed the question: Research and research infrastructure – Is national access/availability possible? InfraLife’s answer is YES!

Forskningsinfrastrukturernas centrala roll inom life science

Under senaste tid har forskningsinfrastrukturernas roll uppmärksammats och diskuterats flitigt. Betänkandet Stärkt fokus på framtidens forskningsinfrastruktur (SOU 2021:65) har besvarats med remissyttranden och Life Science kontoret har arrangerat årlig life science konferens.
