Bio-nanoparticles with a synthetic polymer core are loaded with suitable “cargo” (nucleic acids, proteins, morphogens etc) and covered with a biological membrane that enable specific recognition of target cells. My project focuses on using Megakaryocytic-cell derived Microparticles (MkMPs) to cover a bio-nanoparticle and to observe their interactions with Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells.
