B02

Macromolecular prodrug nanoparticles for antimicrobial therapy
A female and a male chemist working in the synthesis lab.

B02 develops strategies to target intracellular compartments that are used by pathogenic microorganisms to escape from the immune system and are difficult to be reached by antibiotics. B02 engineers polymer nanoparticles (NPs) with targeting surfaces that allow efficient uptake by macrophages. The NPs contain antimycotics that are specifically released in phagolysosomes (PLs). A compound that enhances fusion of PLs containing pathogens with PLs containing antimycotic NPs will be developed for improving therapies.
