Ph.D. program STRIKE—HORIZON-MSCA-2021-DN-01

Dear friends, I would like to inform you that I have been involved as a co-tutor in a Ph.D. program “STRIKE—HORIZON-MSCA-2021-DN-01 (, coordinated by the University of Messina. The project aims to develop a research and training network in nanomedicine/precision medicine. I would like to ask you to help the “STRIKE” program to disseminate the recruitment call (deadline 23rd April 2023)

The program is open to students with a master’s degree in Chemistry/ Pharmaceutical Science/ Biology/Physics/ Biomaterial engineering or related topics.

I'll list the topics below:
Project 1: Development of smart magnetically controlled MNPs (magnetic nanoplatforms) for osteosarcoma treatment at Messina University (UniME), Italy

Project 2: Biological evaluation of new magnetic nanotherapeutics (NanoTher) in 2D and 3D scaffold-based in vitro osteosarcoma models at National Research Council of Italy - Institute of Science, Technology and Sustainability for Ceramics (CNR-ISSMC), Italy.

Project 3: Design, synthesis, characterisation and interaction with magnetic nanoplatforms of Pt(IV) pro-drugs selective for osteosarcoma cancer at National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM), Ireland.

Project 4: Magnetic nanostructured composites for a targeted drug delivery at Palacký University in Olomouc (UP), Czech Republic.

Project 5: Dormant cells in OS: biological characterization and therapeutic targeting at University of Nantes (UN), France

Project 6: Exploiting nanomagnetism for improving intratumoral drug delivery at Nanotech Solutions (NTSOL) Spain.

Project 7: Development of MB-based purification of biomarkers from liquid biopsy for early detection of cancer in BRCA+ subjects at Cogentech (Cogentech) (Italy).

Project 8: Radiolabeling and in vivo evaluation of pharmacokinetics of labeled drugs or drug carriers at Medizinische Universitaet Wien (MUW) Austria.
