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.

    Collaborative consumption allows consumers access to consumer goods and services on non - ownership terms. Given the evolution of the internet, this has resulted in an uptake of collaborative consumption across a variety of contexts, for example accommodation, transportation, and to urs. A model of collaborative consumption intention is proposed using a combination of theory of planned behaviour, commitment, and trust. A total of 117 usable responses were used in an initial study to conduct a preliminary test of the model. Commitment and trust are identified as mediating constructs between attitude, expectations, and ease of use when considering a sharing or collaborative consumption option. Commitment, or bonding, acts as an antecedent of trust in the development of the collaborative consumption relationship. Theoretical and practical implications are outlined relative to the developed model
