Description Different nanomaterials were developed so far in particular against cancer, paid very little attention to their potential immunogenicity, to their final destiny, as well as to the importance of zero-delivery in unwanted places. Thus, there is still a huge disproportion between the present nanomedicine tools and the clinical requirements. The Master thesis candidate will be inserted in a European Marie Curie Project (MINT project) to help in the development of a theranostic & immunocompatible tumor targeted nanoconstructs with enhanced drug delivery capabilities to cancer cells, by disturbing the supportive tumor microenvironment of pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal human malignancies. The nanoconstruct can also work as magnetic resonance contrast agent to be probed for treatment monitoring.
