Multilateral project in the Danube region Serbia-France-Czechia-Slovakia for the cycle 2020-2021

Project title: Design and preparation of multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles for cancer cell detection

Principal Project manager: Dr Vlasta Zavisova, Slovakia

Project manager: Dr Marija Mirković, Research associate

Project Budget: 40.000 EUR

Status: Active

The aim of the project is the development of multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles for possible applications in diagnostic and treatment of cancer and the intensification of scientific cooperation between the top research teams in the frame of the project objectives. The project is realized by complementary research teams from Serbia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and France. It comprehends design and preparation of new series of multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) suitable for MRI diagnostic, magnetic hyperthermia application and drug delivery in chemotherapy, or even for dual chemotherapy-magnetic hyperthermia.
