What happens in cells and materials at the molecular level or the nanoscale? How can we use these properties to make new things? Join me, Upulie Divisekera, to find out how cells work and how we can mimic the things that they do and create new kinds of materials to treat disease.

Upulie Divisekera is a researcher at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Auckland, doctoral candidate at Monash University, Australia and science communicator. Her research has covered fields from cancer immunotherapy to nanoparticle drug delivery. She is currently researching women's reproductive health.
