Nanobiotechnology Laboratory

The Nanobiotechnology Laboratory conducts research in many areas, however, the main focus is on the development of "smart" materials based on nanoparticles and their practical application in vitro and in vivo.

The available methods and instrumental base of the laboratory make it possible to carry out a “full cycle” of work on all stages of nanobiotechnology: from inorganic synthesis of nanoparticles and their coating with various polymer shells to testing the interaction of created nanomaterials with inanimate objects, cell cultures and animals.

About Laboratory

Our Skills

Materials science: colloid chemistry (synthesis of nanoparticles and their functionalization), fine chemical synthesis, microscopy and tomography.

Physical sensor systems: development and application of new types of optical and magnetic biosensors for studying intermolecular interactions and ultrasensitive detection of magnetic materials, including in vivo.

Nanobiosensorics: development of new, highly sensitive express methods for the determination of various molecules (toxins, herbicides, drugs, etc.) based on nanoparticles.
Biocomputing and nanorobotics: development of fundamental principles for the creation of molecular automata and nanorobots, as well as their application for applied problems

Biotechnologies: genetic engineering, hybridoma technologies, cellular technologies (cultivation of higher cells, study of their interaction with objects of animate and inanimate nature).


Theranostics: creation of a new generation of targeted drug delivery systems based on biocomputer structures capable of independently conducting a logical analysis of the totality of biochemical signals of the microenvironment and carrying out a controlled therapeutic effect in the most effective way. Studies of the effectiveness of the created theranostic agents using magnetic resonance imaging and proprietary sensor systems.
