Conn Hastings received a PhD in drug delivery for his work investigating the potential of injectable hydrogels to deliver cells, drugs, and nanoparticles in the treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. After achieving his PhD and completing a year of postdoctoral research, Dr Hastings pursued a career in academic publishing as a full-time scientific editor and science writer, combining his experience within the biomedical sciences with his passion for written communication. Dr Hastings has co-authored several papers published in leading journals, including‘Development of a thermoresponsive chitosan gel combined with human mesenchymal stem cells and desferrioxamine as a multimodal pro-angiogenic therapeutic for the treatment of critical limb ischemia’, in the Journal of Controlled Release (2012; 1, 73–80), and ‘Comparison of biomaterial delivery vehicles for improving acute retention of stem cells in the infarcted heart’, in Biomaterials (2014; 25, 6850–6858). He has also published work in Advanced Healthcare Materials, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, and Biomacromolecules, and in 2012 was awarded an Albert Renold Fellowship from the European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes, which funded a five month visiting researcher placement in the laboratories of Professor Conor Walsh and Professor David Mooney of the Wyss Institute, Harvard University.
