Research group BionaMet ‒ Universidad de Granada

José Manuel Domínguez Vera

Team leader


The BionaMet team develops bioplatforms as biocarriers of optically and magnetically active nanoparticles for imaging and therapy. These bioplatforms are based on proteins and living probiotic bacteria, which specifically accumulate in the liver and bowel, respectively. Molecule-based drugs can also be incorporated into the nanostructures (bioplatform + nanoparticles), thus obtaining targeted multifunctional nanoprobes for theranotics.
We use TEM techniques for characterize the nanostructures, including HAADF, EDX, EELS and HREM modes.
