Metal-Organic Framework Nanoparticles in Photodynamic Therapy: Current Status and Perspectives
A new generation of photosensitizers, which includes metal-organic framework nanoparticles built from the photosensitizer itself as organic building unit, is described. The precise spatial control over the photosensitizer assembly into well-defined metal-organic framework scaffolds resolve the current solubility and aggregation issues and should therefore potentiate the outcome of nanoparticles-based cancer photodynamic therapy and allow for opening new perspectives in the field.

Workshop : „Biomedical Potentials of Inorganic Nanomaterials“
On the issue of „Biomedical Potentials of Inorganic Nanomaterials“, the LMU and Fudan University organized a German-Chinese Young Researcher Workshop in Shanghai. Dr. Stefan Wuttke and his colleague Dr. Rongquin Huang from the Department of Pharmacy, Fudan University – invited various scientists from the fields of pharmacy, chemistry, medicine and biophysics. The goal was an academic knowledge exchange between researchers and especially young researchers from China and Germany.
