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.
