Dear Colleagues and Students,
You are cordially invited to attend the seminar organized by the Department of Chemistry.
The speaker is Assoc. Prof. Filiz Kuralay, Department of Chemistry, Ordu University.
Title: Impact of Nanotechnology on Biomedical Sciences: Nanobiosensors, Nanomotors and Nanoactuators for Drug Delivery
Date: Tuesday, December 19th, 2017
Place: Seminar Room SB-Z14
Nanoscale materials have drawn great attention in recent decades for the development of new technologies. These materials including carbon nanotubes, graphene, nanoparticles, nanowires and nanostructured polymers are widely used in biological, pharmaceutical, clinical, forensic, food safety, energy storage and environmental applications due to their excellent chemical, mechanical, electrical, structural, optical and thermal properties. They constitute an emerging, interdisciplinary field of science for developing new detection methods and scientific investigations of the materials obtained. Nanomaterials-based methods have various commercial and technological applications by eliminating the use of laborious, expensive and complex methods. This presentation will discuss recent developments in the field of biosensing and smart nanomaterials. Particular attention will be given to electrochemical biosensors developed for neurotransmitter, DNA and DNA-anticancer drug interaction detection;nanomotors for cancer detection and therapy, sugar sensing and cell isolation; and conducting polymer-based nanoactuators for controlled drug release. Technical challenges and prospects for these topics will be outlined.
