One of these twinning projects is none other than our very own #NANOFACTS project, which aims to revolutionize the way we approach nanotechnology research. With this new building and the support from HorizonEU, we are confident that we can achieve great things and make significant contributions to the field. We would like to thank @HorizonEU for their continued support and belief in our mission. We are excited to embark on this…
In the last two years, our team completed some exciting experiments during our secondments in Dublin and Vienna, which have brought us one step closer to achieving our goal of researching cancer theranostic nanomaterials and cancer diagnostics. Through our experiments, we were able to gain new insights into the properties and behaviors of nanomaterials, which will help us to develop more effective cancer treatments and diagnostic tools. We also discovered some promising new nanomaterials that could have significant potential for cancer theranostics. Our secondments also gave us the chance to collaborate with researchers from around the world, exchanging ideas and knowledge that will help us continue to make progress in this field. It was an incredible experience that has only strengthened our commitment to advancing cancer research and treatment. Stay…
This February Dr. Nikola Knežević attended the International Meet on Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Systems (#Pharmameet2023) in Porto, Portugal. He delivered a keynote lecture entitled: "Cyclodextrin-Capped Mesoporous Silica-Based Nanomaterials for pH-Responsive Targeted Theranostics of Glioblastoma Multiforme".
After the summer meeting at the BioSense Institute, #nanofacts team members met last week in Vienna at the premises of the partner institution TU Wien. Seniors from Serbia and Ireland visited the Austrian partners, and reflected on the successes of the project so far while planning future postings and experiments with ESRs.
Through the support from our project we published a new research paper in the journal Inorganics on the topic of using mesoporous silica nanoparticles for pH-responsive delivery of iridium metallotherapeutics and treatment of glioblastoma multiforme.Click on the link below to read the full paper: mesoporous silica nanoparticles for pH-responsive delivery of iridium metallotherapeutics and treatment of glioblastoma multiforme. pdf
