Here we meet Bryan Wong, who’s from Chicago (IL, USA), and is studying at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Bryan joined CPI for a summer placement as part of his Bioengineering degree before returning home to continue his studies.

What do you do at CPI?

I’m a placement student in the Nanopharmaceuticals Team at CPI. My placement entails working with lipid nanoparticles, which can be used for vaccines, gene therapy and drug delivery. I’m also working to optimise different processes using lipid nanoparticles and nanopharma.

What did you do before joining CPI?

I’m partway through a Bioengineering degree at MIT, where I’m also carrying out research in the Anderson and Langer labs.

Why did you join CPI?

I was attracted to a placement at CPI because the work I’m doing aligns very well with the research I was doing at MIT. I’ve also been able to experience first-hand how academic research, the like of which I was doing at MIT, translates into industrial and commercial applications.

What do you like about working at CPI?

The great people! Not only that, but the people at CPI are so diverse in their work that I’ve been able to work with experts in electronics, or experts in pharmaceuticals and see the different kinds of projects that they’re working on. It’s been a fantastic learning experience for me.
