The Initial Training Network HeatNMof aims to develop high quality training opportunities for 12 early-stage-researchers (ESRs) in the area of materials science, advanced characterization and biomedicine.
HeatNMof is training the next generation of materials scientists in nanomedicine to exploit heat-triggered release for delivery of anti-tumour drugs. The network is focusing on one of the most promising classes of nanocomposite carriers, inorganic nanoparticles (iNPs) associated to nanoscaled metal organic frameworks (nanoMOFs).
The successful development of this project, involving 7 academic and 3 industrial partners, and 6 partner organisations (5 universities and 1 company), will contribute to the improvement of the highly societal relevant cancer therapy.
In particular, IMDEA Energy will train 2 ESRs within the ETN. One on “Core-shell growing of nanoMOFs onto plasmonic iNPs”, and the second one on “Core-shell growing of nanoMOFs onto magnetic iNPs”.
