NANO-HEALTH - Nano-structured materials for drug targeting, release and imaging

Project: Research project

Project Details


The joint research project Nano-Health, which consists up to now of
eleven single projects, aims to develop a platform of new multifunctional
nanoparticles. These multifunctional nanoparticles will be employed for:
(i) the non-invasive targeted delivery of active substances for the
treatment of chronical diseases by different application routes, e.g.
nasal, oral and pulmonary.
(ii) nanodiagnostics as contrast media in clinical imaging via magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI), via fluorescence and via nuclear imaging by
(iii) nanodiagnostics for clinical applications for the early detection of
atherosclerotic vascular lesions and to trace stem cells in cancer
(iv) toxicological studies of nanostructured materials
