Name of the project: Biocompatible luminescent nanocomplexes for theranostics

Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development Priority Level: в

Goals and objectives
Research directions:

  • Creating new generation multifunctional theranostic agents based on luminescent inorganic nanomaterials
  • Developing cell and animal models for in vivo testing of created agents
  • Creating of instruments ensuring high sensitivity registering of developed agents for optical bioimaging of cells and tissues

Project objective:

Developing complex approaches for efficient diagnostics and therapy of pathologies including: multifunctional new generation theranostic based on luminescent inorganic nanomaterials, call and animal models for in vivo testing of created agents, equipment providing high sensitivity registering of various agents for optical bioimaging of cells and tissues

The practical value of the study

New generation multifunctional theranostic antitumor agents based on organic and inorganic materials, which allow targeted labeling and visualization of tumor cells and selectively affect them without affecting normaltissueshave been developed. Cellular and animal models were developed for in vivo testing of the abovementioned theranostic agents, in particular, a fluorescent tumor model was created for in vivo evaluation of the effectiveness of antitumor agents.Highly sensitive instruments for registration of theranostic agents based on organic and inorganic materials for optical bioimaging of cells and tissues have been developed and tested. New compounds of porphyrazine nature based on cyanoporphyrazine chromophores and their metal complexes, including the gadolinium porphyrazine complex, were obtained. An instrument base and an appropriate approach has been developed to evaluate the photodynamic efficiency of photosensitizers in vitro and in vivo.
