designs, fabricates, and assesses novel magnetic nanostructures (MNS) with unique spin configurations for innovative diagnostics and therapy techniques. An early stage detection and an effective treatment are keystones to reduce cancer mortality. Current clinical procedures fail to detect small concentration of tumoral biomarkers. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNP), like beads, have attracted much attention for their capability to improve cancer detection limits and treatment technologies. However, there are several limitations to the use of MNP.

In the search of diagnosis for certain diseases, doctors have developed a technique that consists on injecting radiopharmaceuticals into the bloodstream. These radiopharmaceuticals contain in its molecular structure, a radioactive isotope that emits gamma radiation during certain period of time, designed to target certain areas where they will be metabolized. By observing the targeted area, the doctor is able to get relevant information for a diagnosis. To obtain the gamma radiation location, gamma cameras are used which can also obtain 3D images (tomography) using various techniques (PET, SPECT).

Gamma camera that rebuilds medical imaging for the identification of varying diseases.

Technological device for the radiology of surgical interventions through layout detection that emits gamma rays. The project consists in the design and manufacturing of a medical equipment to be used in radio-guided surgeries. The main objetive is To achieve the manufacturing of a commercial prototype of the gamma probe, together with user interface that communicates via low energy Bluetooth with the probe.
