General information

Name of the project: Remote controlled nanostructured systems for targeted delivery and diagnostics

Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development Priority Level: в

Goals and objectives

Research directions: Remote controlled nanostructured systems for targeted delivery and diagnostics

Project objective: Production of interactive nanoengineering systems (carriers) based on principles of assembly of nanostructured materials.

The practical value of the study

  • We have represented an in vitro and in vivo system for delivery of medications and biological materials via such physical impacts as magnetic field gradient and the optical tweezers technique.
  • Data has been obtained concerning biodistribution of medication delivery systems in the context of various methods of in vivo administration.
  • New hybrid carriers have been developed that can carry anti-tumor medications with intracellular degradation capabilities. The carriers are sensitive to ultrasound impact.
  • We have developed biosensors relying on giant Raman scattering and conducted in vitro tests of the sensors.
  • Our researchers have developed and investigated in vitro and/or in vivo methods of visualization of medication and biological solution delivery systems using bioluniographs, the photoacoustic method, and MRI imaging.
  • The Laboratory has developed a method of production of submicron-scale medication delivery systems and conducted in vitro and in vivo testing of these methods.
  • A device has been developed for visualization of micron-scale delivery systems in blood (in vitro and in vivo), at the same time an opportunity has been implemented for visualization and capture of molecules in magnetic field gradient.
  • We have developed methods of efficient non-invasive transdermal delivery of medications based on submicron-scale carriers with controlled release capability.
  • Our researchers have developed an encapsulated form of the lactoferrin protein that efficiently – using biocompatible microcontainers – releases protein in the small intestine.

Implemented results of research: Accumulated data concerning biodistributi of education delivery systems in the context of various methods o administration will be used to select a biologically active agent for subsequent encapsulation and pre-clinical tests.

Education and career development:

  • 3 doctoral dissertations and 11 candidate dissertations have been defended.
  • 55 young researchers from 14 higher education organizations have completed training at the Laboratory.
  • 17 education programs have been compiled (for the masters degree programs «Materials science and technology» and «Managing innovations in research-intense technologies», for the bachelor and master degree program «Electronics and nanoelectronics»).
  • 4 monographs and 5 textbooks have been published.

Organizational and structural changes: Unique costly equipment is used not only for collaborative usage by research groups at the Saratov State University but also for internships of young scientists from Russia and other countries. This allowed the Laboratory's team to win about 30 grants over the period between 2014 and 2018.

Other results:

  • The Laboratory has organized the 6th and the 7th International Conferences «Nanoparticles, nanostructured coatings and microcontainers: technology, properties, applications».
  • We have conducted the 2nd International School for Young Scientists «Nanostructured materials» within the «Nanoworkshop».
