Nanoparticles for Molecular Imaging
At the Nanomedicine and Molecular Imaging group we have developed a new kind of multifunctional nanoprobes; 68Ga core-doped nanoparticles. This new kind of material provides simultaneous PET and positive MRI signal.
In the last years our research has focused in the synthesis and application of iron oxide nanoparticles for T1, positive, signal in MRI.
We are interested in the development of new bioconjugation strategies for the synthesis of multifunctional tracers. We are particularly interested on the use of bioorthogonal chemistry for the in vivo bioconjugation of nanoparticles
A recently started line of work of the group consists on the development of new nanoparticles to deal with multidrug resistant bacteria.
We are producing multiplexed nanoparticles to treat pulmonary infectious diseases
