Morten Schallburg Nielsen is new affiliated researcher at DANDRITE

Associate professor Morten Schallburg Nielsen is new affiliated researcher in DANDRITE from September 2017. His primary focus is receptor-mediated transport systems in brain endothelial cells, which have the potential to mediate transcytosis of nanocarriers across the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB). Though, previous studies using the transferrin receptor and LRP1 have succeeded in transporting drugs across the endothelium, the mechanisms are far from understood. Morten Schallburg Nielsen and his group will characterize different subcellular trafficking routes of known and novel receptors in brain endothelial cells, in order to find the optimal receptor systems for drug delivery to the brain
