Event Description

Design, synthesis and biofunctionalization of magnetic nanoparticles: current and prospective in vivo applications

By Prof. Etienne Duguet
CNRS, Univ. Bordeaux, ICMCB, 87 avenue du Dr Albert Schweitzer, F-33608 Pessac (France)
This course will be the opportunity of presenting and discussing potential advantages of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles for diagnosis and therapy through (i) an overview of their potentialities, not only for MRI contrast enhancement, such as the commercial «Ultrasmall SuperParamagnetic Iron Oxide» (USPIO), but also for cancer therapy (magnetic fluid hyperthermia) and remote-triggered drug release, (ii) an understanding of the problems involved as soon as nanoparticles are injected in the blood-compartment, such as the reaction of the mononuclear phagocyte system, the opsonization process and the factors affecting the nanoparticle biodistribution and (iii) the possibilities for resolving them: surface modification for long-circulating or macrophage-evading nanoparticles, ligand grafting for active targeting of specific organs or tumor cells…
Tackled from the viewpoint of chemistry, this course doesn’t require specific knowledge in physics, biology and medicine.
 
Registration is open until 8 of October(http://bit.ly/Ox6RhH)

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
