The main goal of the Conference  is to present and discuss recent developments and applications of plasmonic nanostructures with controlled geometrical, optical, and surface chemical properties, as well as multifunctional nanocomposites conjugated to various molecular ligands. These topics are the subject of intensive studies and applications in biology and medicine. To date, this field has included genomics and biosensorics, immunoassays and clinical chemistry, phototherapy of cancer cells and tumors, targeted delivery of drugs and antigens, and optical bioimaging of cells and tissues with state-of-the-art nanophotonic detection systems. Multifunctional nanocomposites that combine therapeutic, diagnostic, and sensing modalities in a single nanostructure are widely used in a new field of nanobiotechnology called theranostics. Although the term theranostics has been employed for the first time quite recently, it is now rapidly growing and promising field at the crossroads of plasmonics and nanomedicine.

 
Topics:
  • Fabrication of plasmon-resonant NPs and nanostructures
  • Multifunctional nanostructures for theranostics
  • Composite nanostructured functional materials
  • Optical properties of plasmon resonant NPs and nanostructures
  • Physicochemical characterization of NPs and nanostructures
  • Functionalization of NPs with biospecific macromolecules
  • Nanoscale biosensors
  • Chemical technologies based on nanoparticles
  • Cell imaging with NP bioconjugates
  • Photothermal and photodynamic therapy using nanocomposites
  • Application of nanoparticles to the targeted drug delivery
  • Uptake of NPs by cells
  • Biodistribution and toxicity of NPs in vitro and in vivo
  • Analytical applications of NPs and bioconjugates
  • SERS with plasmonic nanostructures
  • SERS tags as novel nanoprobes
  • Quantum dots and its application
