School of Engineering

Applied Photobiological Chemistry

Specialised research in biomedical applications (antimicrobial resistance with phototherapy) and development of theragnostics in the diagnosis and treatment of tumours.

MANAGER:

Photochemistry Laboratory

It focuses its research activity on photochemistry and the interrelationships of light with molecules, materials and biological systems. It carries out RDI activities and knowledge and technology transfer in solar photoprotection, cancer photochemotherapy, photoantimicrobial therapies and fluorescence imaging.

LATEST PROJECTS

Theranostic photosensitizers (Phosphorescence-guided surgery combined with photodynamic therapy)

Photodynamic therapy uses harmless light in live cells and animal to activate non- toxic photosensitive chemicals photosensitizers to generate cytotoxic species for malignant cell eradication (cancer cells, bacterial infections).

Doctoral thesis

Photosensitive Targeted Nanocarriers for Selective Delivery of Photodynamic Therapy

29/07/2021
Dr Elena de las Heras recently defended her doctoral thesis at IQS, in which she has designed and developed new photo-immuno-chemo-nanotransporters, which have shown high photodynamic activity against tumour cells and are effective and safe for the photodynamic delivery of doxorubicin on demand.
