Welcome to the TrojaNanoHorse Laboratory, led by Valentina Cauda!
The goal of our research is to develop a new generation of multifunctional therapeutic and diagnostic (thus theranostic) nanosystems displaying non-immunogenicity, improved cancer treatment, cell imaging, and high safety for the hosting organism. The innovative concept behind this approach relies on a core-shell nanosystem with a therapeutically active core, i.e. a TrojaNanoHorse (TNH).
This research was granted by the European Research Council as an ERC Starting Grant 2015, project title: “Hybrid immune-eluding nanocrystals as smart and active theranostic weapons against cancer” project Acronym: TROJANANOHORSE.
This project has received funding from the European Research Council as an ERC Starting Grant 2015 under grant agreement No 678151
