Project description

Objectives of the joint exchange program "DINaMiT" is to develop state-of-the art remotely responsive magnetic/metal nanoparticle functionalized drug delivery carriers for dual optical and magnetic resonance imaging modalities, equip such probes with theranostic detection/delivery capabilities and apply them for in-vivo study of anticancer drugs. To implement ambitious goals of such a program seven work-packages will be pursued. Each work-package will constitute of a necessary step for reaching the milestones and overall goals of the exchange programme.
