Being Smart In Coordination Chemistry: Medical Applications
26 Sep 2016 - 28 Sep 2016
Orléans, France
Metal complexes have increasing importance in modern medicine. Early recognition of diseases, which is the cornerstone of successful therapies, is one of the most important goals in medical imaging. To meet this challenge, one needs to explore and to visualize the alterations in the molecular events of biological processes, from the homeostasis of a simple metal ion to the complex functioning of biomolecular assemblies. For this, even the most sophisticated instrumentational tools like MRI, PET, SPECT or optical imaging need to be complemented with the appropriate chemistry. Many of the diagnostic agents, indispensable in molecular imaging approaches, are based on metal complexes.

Among the numerous therapeutic applications that rely on metal ions, one emerging field is radioimmunotherapy. It uses radionuclide-labelled antibodies to deliver radiation exclusively to cancerous cells minimalizing side effects.

In order to circumvent toxicity and to ensure specific delivery, metal ions are trapped into various scaffolds, ranging from small chelators to specifically-designed multifunctional nanoparticles. They all have to fulfill strict requirements of tight binding in order to carry the metal ion safely to the target.

The “LE STUDIUM CONFERENCE” entitled “Being smart in coordination chemistry: medical applications” intends to bring together different actors of the research and medical application of metal complexes, including chemists, biochemists and physicians in the objective of confronting different views, exploring medical needs and potential responses.
