Short personal activity proposal for the COST Action CA15135 (max 1000 characters)

“Petru Poni” Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry has established long-term development strategy in interdisciplinary research areas. The main research objectives are focused around the innovative biomedical smart nanosystems obtained by supramolecular self-assembly and self-organization concepts. Supramolecular chemistry is a powerful tool in constructing highly complex multi-functional chemical systems from molecular components held together by non-covalent intramolecular forces.

The main research directions are as follows:

–          Developing of conceptually new smart nanosystems to be used in diagnostics and/or targeted drug delivery systems

–          Elaboration of protocols for the full in vitro testing of the optimum systems for cellular experiments.

Another area of interdisciplinary research consists in  development of electrochemical platform for multi-analyte detection with high sensitivity and specificity with biomedical applications, especially involved in diagnostics. The concept of simultaneous detection of multiple analytes is based on handling different electrode surfaces architecture and configuration.
