Project Details

Project Description

The application of nanomaterials in biomedicine is increasing rapidly and offers excellent prospects for developing new non-invasive strategies capable of the diagnosis and treatment of major diseases. The objective of this project is to prepare, characterize and evaluate nanomaterials for application in the diagnosis of cancer by a combination of positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and/or fluorescence imaging. By combining multiple imaging capabilities into a single probe, higher sensitivity can potentially be achieved which, in the longer term, will contribute to addressing the inability to identify and treat cancer during the early stages of development.
