Dong Ye

started his PhD in school the Centre for BioNano Interactions, University College Dublin in October 2008. Since then, he has been working on a human in vitro blood-brain barrier model and nanoparticles delivery through the brain. His research is mainly to understand transport mechanisms of nanoparticles in human microvascular endothelial cell model using transmission electron microscopy, and to explore delivery strategies to improve nanoparticle penetration efficiency in the brain.

Dong completed his undergraduate study from Hubei University (China) with a BSc in Biological Science in 2005. Shortly after graduation, he continued another 3-year Master study in biochemistry and molecular biology in the same university until 2008. His thesis involved a plant genetic engineering research by inserting genes into plant cells to modify plants’ morphological and reproductive characteristics. Dong is funded by HEA PRTLI4 Inspire.
