PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Huge progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology has led to a development of new nanostructured materials with of new nanostructured materials with properties that promise breakthrough in vast number of possible applications. The convenience of nanostructured materials for medical applications is based on their reduced dimensionality comparable with biological entities (cells, proteins, gens, etc.) so that treatment can be achieved directly at the cell and subcell (molecular) levels. In particular, nowadays nanomagnetism is at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and in the field of nanomedicine, magnetic nanoparticles are among the most promising nanomaterials for clinical diagnostic and therapeutic applications. From the above reasons the main objective of this project is the research on the magnetic and radionucleide labeled nanomaterials suitable for medical applications, including multifunctional nanomaterials based on the radionucleide labeled magnetic nanoparticles. On the basis of the above stated, main objective of the project will be realized through the following workpackages. Design of nanomagnetic materials for application in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia; design of new radionucleide labeled nanostructures for diagnostics and targeted therapy of malignant diseases, Development of new radiopharmaceuticals based on nanostructured materials, Research on multifunctional radionuclide labeled magnetic nanoparticles for simultaneous: radionuclide and magnetic hyperthermia therapy.
