High Value Nutraceuticals Masters Scholarship
The overall aim of this research is to discover the potential of LMWF extracted from NZ seaweed U. pinnatifida to be developed into an adjuvant in cervical cancer immunotherapy. The specific aims are: 1) successfully obtain LMWF and develop a LMWF formulation as a potential immune-adjuvant; 2) study LMWF’s ability to stimulate DC proliferation and maturation and its effect as an immuno-adjuvant in a cell culture system. The main outcome will be an immuno-adjuvant to be developed and ready to be applied in the clinical setting. Such new use will be attractive to researchers around the world, and we will submit the results to high impact journal for publication.
