Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

We present an interdisciplinary approach that allows for the evaluation of nanoparticle cytotoxicity at the single-cell level. By combining single-cell microfluidics with nanoparticle chemistry, real-time and high-throughput multimodal imaging of cellular interactions with functionalised gold nanorods was successfully achieved. The integration of such techniques into tools for high-resolution cell monitoring and drug screening has, to the best of our knowledge, not been reported.
