Image Guided Radiotherapy

Image Guided Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy is an important part of modern cancer treatment and more than 50% of cancer patients receive radiotherapy at least once. Modern radiotherapy relies on advanced high precision planning, treatment equipment and imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT), positron-emission tomography (PET) and magnetic imaging resonance (MRI) in order to deliver high radiation doses to a precisely defined target in patients. Read more

Nanoparticle imaging agents

Nanoparticle imaging agents

Lipid nanoparticles (liposomes) can serve as diagnostic imaging agents for fast visualization of solid tumors and metastases in vivo due to their potential as carriers of radioactive isotopes for therapeutic use. In this research project radioisotope loaded liposomes are designed for use as imaging agents in clinic for diagnostic and theranostic applications. Read more

Nanostructuring of materials

Nanostructuring of materials

Controlled synthesis and structuring of small building blocks that self-organize into highly functional nanomaterials for use in disease diagnostics and therapy is an important aspect in the development of new nanomedicine technology. Read more

Optical nanosensors

Optical nanosensors

At the DTU Center for Nanomedicine and Theranostics we have developed new nanosensors for measurements of intracellular pH and demonstrated that these are superior to conventional pH sensors. By optimization and improvements of calibration and image analysis we are now demonstrating the use of nanosensors for answering biological questions. Read more

Biological Barriers

Biological barriers

A major challenge in the drug delivery field is to enhance transport of therapeutics across biological barriers such as the blood brain barrier (BBB), the small intestine, nasal, skin and the mouth mucosa. Read more

Multiple compartment carriers

The assembly of carriers containing multiple compartments with a structure remindful of a biological cell is envisioned to be an approach to substitute for missing or lost cellular function, often in the context of enzyme replacement therapy. The aim is to provide a nature-inspired, long term solution for patients suffering from a disease caused by a malfunctioning enzyme. Read more.
