IMF: Materials for Health and Biology

While research at the frontier between chemistry and biology is of major importance for the design of new drugs, there is also high potential for developing novel materials for biotechnologies.

In this context, the research activity of the IMF team addresses these two objectives, with, on the one hand, the design of new molecules for cancer treatment by photodynamic therapy, and on the other hand the preparation of innovative materials and nanomaterials for therapy and/or diagnosis. In addition, our interest also focuses on the development of original electrode materials allowing the in-depth investigation of biological mechanisms by electrochemical routes.
