Synopsis of research lines:
Our laboratory works on the development of new aptamers with future biomedical applications. Aptamers can be used as therapeutic and diagnostic tools. Our research focuses primarily on the generation of aptamers with an ability to induce and potentiate the antitumor immune response. We have developed antagonist and agonist aptamers in order to model the function of a receptor, thereby inhibiting or activating it according to therapeutic needs. One of the most novel applications of this technology is the use of aptamers to carry a load in vivo to a target cell; the nature of said load may be anything from a chemotherapy agent to siRNA or even another aptamer.
