Title: New Fluorescent Nanovesicles, by Self-assembly of Organic Fluorophores, Sterols and Surfactants, as Probes for Bioimaging

Place: Sala d'Actes Carles Miravitlles (ICMAB)

Abstract:

Finding new fluorescent organic nanoparticles (FONs) with the potential to overcome the limits of commonly used fluorescent probes is a subject of strong interest for materials scientists developing new probes for fluorescence microscopy. During this PhD Thesis, innovative fluorescent nanovesicles, based on the self-assembly of organic fluorophores, sterols and surfactants, named Quatsomes (QSs), have been developed. Fluorescent QSs have been prepared using several types of fluorophores, irrespective of their physicochemical and optical properties, showing in all the cases studied superior colloidal stability and enhanced fluorescent features, especially high brightness, in relation to single molecule fluorophores and other type of FONs. Fluorescent QSs, which have been successfully used for in vitro bioimaging, constitute therefore promising candidates for applications in bioimaging, theranostics and, generally, nanomedicine.
