Purpose of the STSM:
Learning methods of synthesis, modification and testing nanoparticles as drug carriers and diagnostic instruments in in vitro and in vivo models. After STSM my goal is to transfer this knowledge to my research in the field of virology, where nanoparticles could be used in antisense RNA therapy in order to stop infection. Nanoparticles can be used as carriers of antisense RNA or serve as a tool for imaging or measuring the efficiency of antisense RNA delivery to cells.
