Development of advanced materials for biomedicine where nanodiagnosis, drug delivery, tissue engineering and antimicrobial and oncological therapies play a fundamental role. The research carried out ranges from basic research to applied translational research.
DESCRIPTION: INMA works in the detection, prophylaxis and treatment of bacterial infections, as well as diseases generated by parasites. It is also working on the development of new classes of antimicrobial nanomaterials (bactericides and fungicides). Within this line are also included those projects and publications whose objective is to conserve heritage affected by microbial contamination.
DESCRIPTION: This line includes several levels of development: i) The development of bioortogonal catalysis systems that favor the selective and remote formation of compounds of antitumor activity generated in situ in a localized manner; ii) Search for advanced nanomaterials with catalytic properties that mimic the action of natural enzymes present at the intracellular level, increasing their performance and performance in adverse microtumor environments; iii) The use of localized heat in the microenvironment of enzyme-functionalized magnetic nanoparticles for the optimization of multienzymatic processes in biotechnology and for in situ generation of drugs.
DESCRIPTION: The activity in this line focuses on the manufacture of scaffolds for tissue regeneration made up of nanofibers and nanoparticles containing bioactive molecules (proteins, growth factors, antibiotics) that accelerate the regenerative process. Use of mechanostrasduction through magnetic particles.
