Development and evaluation of specific strategies for the targeted labeling of intracellular structures with quantum dots in live cells

The current project focuses on the intracellulair delivery of fluorescent nanomaterials (quantum dots), where several technologies will be evaluated to obtain cytoplasmic delivery. Both heat-generating particles and the combination of ultrasound and quantum dots will be tested in generating membrane pores, where cytoplasmic delivery will be compared to the level obtained by microinjection
