About Manoj

Mr Sharma completed his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the University of Delhi and received his Masters of Chemical Science from the Central University of Punjab.

Manoj’s research interests include the synthesis of nanoparticles of various morphology and the development of nanoparticles based gene carriers.

Manoj has previously worked on the project ‘Design of 2D-TMDs’ and their applications in photo electrocatalysis as a Junior Research Fellow at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.

Project details

Synthesis and applications of non-viral gene vectors

The general aim of this project is to develop a new generation of non-viral vectors for the delivery of gene and biomolecules. Silica-based composite nanoparticles will be prepared with purpose-designed nanoparticle asymmetry, nanoscale surface roughness and compositions. Their cellular interactions and cellular delivery performance will be comprehensively studied to deliver new understanding of the relationship between unconventional nanostructural parameters and gene/biomolecular delivery efficacy. The potential applications of these particles will be tested in mRNA, DNA and protein delivery applications both in vitro and in vivo.
