Nanostructured Fluorinated Materials as Smart Reporter Agents in 19F MRI

Please note that the job is no longer active!

This research program aims to design, synthesize and characterize new fluorinated nanostructured materials as intelligent reporters in 19F Magnetic Resonance Imaging (19F-MRI). The nanostructured molecular reporter agents, target of this project, will be obtained via the self-assembly in solution of fluorinated molecular building blocks specifically designed to possess optimal magnetic properties. Such nanostructured reporter agents will allow to confine within nanoscale cages (~ 5 nm) fluorinated moieties, thus making them insensitive to environmental changes which could cause a reduced quality of resonance images. Objectives of the project are the understanding and full implementation into real-world applications of the technological potential of self-assembly processes in order to obtain fluorinated nanostructured materials with optimized magnetic properties to be used as smart molecular probes in 19F imaging.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
