Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

Focuses on processes and interventions aimed at reducing offending and assisting offenders to reintegrate and desist from crime. A recent strand of inquiry is concerned with research on very early preventative interventions and research on risk factors. Summarises some findings on the effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling in reducing problematic behaviour and supporting the change process.
