Pre-Conference Tutorial And Training Course On Green Nanotechnology



December 12th , 2023 : 14:00 - 18:00 h.
Venue: INTEMA, Av. Colón 10850, Auditorium 2nd. Floor
Free transport from UTHGRA Hotel at 13:00 h
Coffee break included. 


This Pre-Conference tutorial and training session addresses advances on the applications of Green Nanotechnology in the development of Nano Biomaterials.

Detailed description and analysis of the intervention of green nanotechnology for the production of biocompatible nanoparticles for molecular imaging, therapeutic and biomaterials applications will form a focal point of this training program and tutorial. Specifically, phytochemicals derived from a plethora of herbs, fruits and various plant species possess innate abilities to bind to receptor proteins on a vast variety of normal/tumor cells. Electron rich phytochemicals provide a rich source of energetic electrons to transform metals into Bionanomaterials. This training course/tutorial will explore fundamental science and technology of naturally available phytochemicals and their utility through Green nanotechnology for the production of molecular imaging, and therapeutic products.

Due to the rapid degradation of phytochemicals in vivo, the utility of receptor protein-specific phytochemicals as molecular/anatomic imaging probes has largely remained unexplored. This tutorial will address latest advances in improving the bioavailability of phytochemicals through green nanotechnology and thus provide state of the art knowledge and training to design the next generation of biomaterials and nanoparticle-based imaging agents and theranostic probes derived from receptor specific phytochemicals. 


The course/tutorial will feature hands on training and formal education on the implications of green nanotechnology in biomaterials science, molecular imaging and therapy. This tutorial/course is of significant benefit to scientists, engineers, clinicians, students and professionals in biomaterials research, and professionals in molecular imaging and therapy from industry and academia.

Personal Q&A time with Professor Kattesh V. Katti—During and at Coffee/Tea breaks and correspondence after the course via email.
