Project Director: Dr. Irina Zgura
Position No. 44, according to the list approved by JINR no. 397/27.05.2019
LABORATORY IN JINR: Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics (FLNP)
PARTNERS IN ROMANIA: National Institute for Materials Physics -NIMP
RESPONSIBLE PERSONS: dr. Irina Zgura (NIMP), Dr. Maria BALASOIU (FLNP)
The overall objective of this project is to interlink the expertise of research groups from NIMP and JINR in order to obtain novel biocomposite materials based on Ag and ZnO structures with improved properties from the point of view of multiple functionalities/high therapeutic potential.
This project proposal has the following specific objectives:
O1) Preparation of bio-materials based on metallic nanoparticles and ZnO structures.
O2) Tuning the synthesis conditions in order to obtain biocomposite materials with different morphologies, or different amount of metallic nanoparticles and their complex characterization.
O3) Estimation of the biological performances.
O4) Wide dissemination of the results by publishing at national and international level.
