Personal profile


Dr Andrew Care is Cancer Institute NSW (CINSW) Early Career Fellow in the Department of Molecular Sciences at Macquarie University (MQ). He completed a PhD in ‘Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences’ at MQ in 2015 and a post-doctoral position in ‘Nanoparticle-based Drug Delivery Systems’ at the MQ node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics in 2017. During this time, his research focused on engineering proteins that self-assemble into functional biomaterials for applied nanobiotechnology. In 2018, Andrew was awarded a CINSW Fellowship to develop self-assembling protein nanoparticles into therapeutic tools for the treatment of diseases, primarily cancer and neurodegeneration. This work is transdisciplinary in nature and utilizes modern tools and methodologies from synthetic biology, materials science, pharmacology, and cancer/neuro-biology. To date, his team (www.careresearchgroup.com) have successfully bioengineered PNPs to package functional proteins that can facilitate different therapeutic modalities, including photodynamic cancer therapy (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.06.06.138305v1.full).
