NEW THERAPEUTIC STRATEGIES AGAINST CANCER: GENERATION, CHARACTERIZATION AND USE OF MURINE MODELS OF PANCREATIC ADENOCARCINOMA FOR THE STUDY OF BIODISTRIBUTION AND ANTINEOPLASTIC EFFICACY OF NANO-BIOREACTORS

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Pancreatic cancer is the fifth cause of cancer death in the world and has features that make it difficult to treat. The use of nanoparticles has been recently introduced with success in the treatment of neoplasia. The aim of the project is to produce and characterize new and yet generated mouse models of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and test in vivo a new therapeutic approach based on ferromagnetic nanoparticles (nano-bioreactors) conjugated with targeting units (monoclonal antibodies and proteic units) and loaded with antitumoral drugs, able to kill target cells by hypertermia and/or specific antitumoral drugs. The study will include the evaluation in vivo of nano-bioreactors on the produced murine models.

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!
