报告题目：Nanotechnology Based Molecular Imaging
Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology and refers to highly specific medical intervention at the nanoscale for diagnosing, curing or preventing diseases. Nanomedicine involves the creation and application of nanobiomaterials and devices at the molecular level. This talk will exemplify the great potentials and challenges of nanoplatform-based molecular imaging agents, covering microbubbles, quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, iron oxide nanoparticles as well as soft nanomaterials for ultrasound, near-infrared fluorescence, Raman, photoacoutistic, magnetic resonance imaging, as well as radionuclide (PET and SPECT) imaging applications. Towards the end of the talk, the design of theranostics based upon biocompatible nanostructures will also be discussed.
