Lead researcher

Emeritus Professor George Attard

Research interests

  • the primary focus of my research is on understanding the fundamental properties and behaviour of complex chemical systems;
  • the discovery that certain types of naturally-occuring glycosides, when formulated to produce self-assembled nanoparticles are potent modulators of immune responses;
  • the discovery that lyotropic liquid crystalline phases can be used as templates for the synthesis of nanostructured mesoporous oxides, semiconductors and metals, which led to the foundation of Nanotecture PLC, a University spin-out;
