※English below

 国際先端科学技術研究機構(IROAST)は、Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) 所属、Ick Chan Kwon IROAST客員教授による、第97回IROASTセミナーを下記のとおり開催いたします。 Kwon先生は抗生物質、抗がん剤、遺伝子治療のための高分子ナノ粒子ベースのドラッグデリバリーシステムの研究やセラグノシスの研究にも先駆的に取り組んでいます。

1.日 時:令和5年7月31日(月)10:30-11:30

2.会 場:黒髪南C8(工学部2号館) 64番 1階211講義室 →2階224講義室

3.講演者・演題 (Speaker & Title):
Dr. Ick Chan Kwon, Biomedical Research Division, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), Korea
“Design of Drug Delivery Guided by Molecular Imaging Technology”

4.概要 (Abstract) :

For decades, molecular imaging, capable of monitoring intercellular/intracellular molecular processes in organisms, has provided valuable information for a variety of research fields. Biomarkers such as enzymes, receptors, and proteins can provide information for early diagnosis of diseases and monitoring of therapeutic effects, and thus can be used as targets for molecular imaging. Among them, molecular imaging technology based on receptor-ligand interaction is emerging as a promising strategy for monitoring intractable diseases such as cancer. However, the basic requirement for this kind of imaging probe is to provide disease-specific information along with high imaging sensitivity. Here, we developed a self-quenching imaging probe capable of emitting fluorescence (activation) via a de-quenching reaction after internalization via receptor-ligand binding. Demonstrations of EGFR or CD47 target specific fluorescence signals will be presented in this presentation.
