Research Focus: photo-theranostic agents

Our laboratory is greatly interested in the development of highly selective and efficient photo-theranostic agents. To get a deeper insight into the interplay between structure and function of the photoactive compounds density functional theory (DFT) calculations are routinely used in our studies. Another branch of research is devoted to the investigation of antibacterial coatings with highly tunable properties that can readily be matched to the area of application. Recently, based on self-assembly process, we developed polymer based composite material with photo-bactericidal activity. Obtained material not only prevents bacterial colonization and biofilm formation on living and non-living surfaces, but also able to release active agent that can eradicate pathogens upon irradiation using the disruptive force of reactive oxygen species..
