Five projects funded by DBT, DST and ICMR are going on in Nanotechnology.

The DBT funded project collaborated with ILS, Bhubaneshwar and IIT Chennai and the ICMR funded project with ILS, Bhubaneshwar are the new nanotechnology projects.

A DST international collaboration with Deakin University, Australia on aptamer-based drug delivery has also been approved. These projects are based on targeted drug delivery by using tools common in nanotechnology to treat retinoblastoma.

The DBT funded project entitled “Targeted Gold Nanoparticle Conjugates for RNAi Delivery” (3years) uses gold nanoparticle as a vehicle to carry RNAi for the targeted therapy of retinoblastoma at molecular level.

The DBT funded project entitled “Effect of antioxidant peptides in modulating the Reactive oxygen Species in retinoblastoma cell line through nanoparticles” (3years) is sanctioned. This project brings out the possibility of using short antioxidant peptides as a supplement to the existing therapeutic modalities in treating retinoblastoma.
