This training course/tutorial addresses advances on the applications of green nanotechnology in molecular imaging and therapy.
Detailed description and analysis of the intervention of green nanotechnology for the production of biocompatible nanoparticles for molecular imaging and therapeutic applications will form a focal point of this training course/tutorial. - Specifically, phytochemicals derived from a plethora of herbs, fruits and various plant species possess innate abilities to bind to receptor proteins on a vast variety of normal/tumor cells.
Due to the rapid degradation of phytochemicals in vivo because of efficient metabolic processes, the utility of receptor protein-specific phytochemicals as molecular/anatomic imaging probes has largely remained unexplored. This tutorial will address latest advances in improving the bioavailability of phytochemicals through green nanotechnology and thus provide state of the art knowledge and training to design the next generation of nanoparticle-based imaging agents and theranostic probes derived from receptor specific phytochemicals.
The course will feature hands on training and formal education on the implications of green nanotechnology in molecular imaging and therapy. This will in turn benefit scientists, engineers, clinicians, students and professionals in molecular imaging and therapy from industry and academia.
Personal Q&A time with the Tutor during the lecture/experimental course at the conference site and correspondence after the course via email.
Duration: One hour
