Investigating nanotechnology for stroke treatmentResearching the use of nanotechnology for the treatment of stroke, Murdoch scientist Xuan Le is off to the National University of Singapore to further her research.

Ms Le was one of six Western Australian women to receive the 2010 Prime Minister’s Australian Asia Endeavour Awards.

The award will allow the Western Australian Nanochemistry Research Institute student to study and work in an Asian country for up to a year, fully funded.

Ms Le said she was excited about the potential nanotechnology provided to revolutionise and change people’s lives.

“To be able to design new materials that can help to enhance medical treatments can be very exciting as the potential is limitless and ultimately in the long run we can design treatments for specific individuals and their diseases.”

Head of the Murdoch-based Applied Nanotechnology Research Group, Dr Gérrard Poinern, said he was extremely pleased his PhD student, Ms Le, would now be able to continue her nanotechnology work into polymer drug delivery in Singapore.
