LOCALSCENT Project - Scattering assisted localization of Alzheimer’s fluorescent aggregates
The Project LOCALSCENT (Scattering assisted localization of Alzheimer’s fluorescent aggregates) aims to realize a new, non-invasive and low-cost protocol for the Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) early diagnosis. In AD patients, since the early stage of the pathology, it is possible to observe the presence of morphological and structural changes in the retina. In particular neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) have been detected. Many retinal imaging studies, demonstrated a correlation between the onset of AD and changes of the retinal vascularization, decrease of the retinal cells and thinning of the optical disk. The retina, an extension ...
Research in pediatric diseases: from nanotechnologies to diagnostics and precision medicine, 28/09/2021, Webinar
Webinar mini-symposium. The event “Research in pediatric diseases: from nanotechnologies to diagnostics and precision medicine” aims to broaden the knowledge of the students of the Degree Courses in Medicine and Biomedical disciplines and stimulate their curiosity about basic and applied research in the field of pediatric diseases. In particular, expert researchers from the CNR IBIOM institutes in Bari, Nanotec in Lecce, IRIB in Palermo and ITB in Milan together with researchers from the University of Palermo will present their work: from the role of mitochondria in neurodevelopment to the therapeutic and diagnostic opportunities ...
Molecularly Imprinted Silk Fibroin Nanoparticles
Nanosized biomimetics prepared by the strategy of molecular imprinting, that is, the stamping of recognition sites by means of a template-assisted synthesis, are demonstrating potential as plastic antibodies in medicine, proving effective for cell imaging and targeted therapies. Most molecularly imprinted nanoparticles (MIP-NPs) are currently made of soft matter, such as polyacrylamide and derivatives. Yet, MIP-NPs biocompatibility is crucial for their effective translation into...
