Course programme

It focuses on the development and functionalization of semiconductor quantum dots for targeted cancer imaging. Zinc Sulphide (ZnS) nanocrystals doped with metallic and transition metal ions developed by aqueous chemistry routes and their biocompatibility are studied. The figure above shows the multicolour emitting quantum dots of ZnS doped with various ions of Mn, Cu, Al, etc. Folic acid conjugated ZnS quantum dots have been targeted to cancer cells and imaged using a fluorescent microscope as shown in the figure on the right.
