Prof. Syuzanna Harutyunyan and her group member Sofiya Runikhina received a euro 50,000 NWO XS Grant for their project "Towards adaptive drug delivery: synthesis of biologically relevant amides in oscillatory system"
The project will focus on adaptive drug delivery in sync with the body’s natural biological rhythm. This is a challenging field of nanomedicine that has been successfully developed for only very few systems. New approaches for modulating drug release dynamically are therefore highly interesting and important to provide a fresh impetus to this field. Harutyunyan proposes an adaptive chemical oscillating system capable of releasing bioactive amides depending on the presence of specific hormones and neurotransmitters. Successful realisation of the project could form an important milestone towards personalized, targeted drug delivery systems.
