The research of the biomedical sciences department focuses on nanoparticle mediated delivery of therapeutic drugs and genes. The fate of those particles in the body can be monitored non-invasively by MRI and optical imaging after labelling with the appropriate imaging agents. Our aim is to increase the efficiency of delivery of gene and protein into living organisms, in order to develop effective therapeutic modalities against human diseases.
