Topic: “Microbubble-based nanoparticle co-delivery system for theranostic applications”
While nanometer-sized medicines hold great promises for tumor imaging and as therapeutic agents, their penetration in tumor tissues is highly challenging. This project aims at developing a microbubble-based nanoparticle co-delivery system (MiNaCo) for the delivery of imaging and therapeutic nanosystems deep in tumors upon ultrasound activation.
This project was made possible with the collaboration of Dr. Jai Prakash from the Department of Biomaterials, Science and Technology (DBE) and Pr. Michel Versluis from the Department of Physic of Fluidics, both active members at the University of Twente.
