Title : Biocatalytic nanoreactors as smart biomedicine


Recent years have seen an exponential growth in the development of drug delivery nanoplatforms that carry the therapeutic cargo to diseased sites. Besides significant progress, only a handful of nanomedicines reached clinical trials. Thus, the future demands the development of new and smart strategies to increase the scope and effectiveness of existing nano supports. Biocatalytic nanoreactors are thus attracting much attention. These nanoreactors basically consist of immobilized enzymes that carry out in situ transformation of prodrugs to more toxic active drugs rather than simple drug delivery. This talk will discuss the development of biocatalytic nanoreactors as biomedicines for smart action against debilitating diseases.

Audience take-away:

  • Design and synthesis of biocatalytic nanoreactors.
  • Their role and potential application in nanomedicine.
  • Application of virus like particles as nanocarriers.
  • Advancements in the fields of nanobiotechnology and theranostic applications.
  • The talk will discuss the development of new nanomedicines offering new tools for an improvement in the conventional therapeutic approaches with minimized adverse effects.


Dr. Kanchan Chauhan graduated with a PhD in Chemistry (2016) from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), New Delhi, India. She then joined the research group of Dr. Rafael Vazquez Duhalt at the Centre of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, National Autonomous University of Mexico (CNyN-UNAM), Mexico. She obtained the position of an Assistant Professor at the same institute in 2018. Currently she is working on different multidisciplinary projects based on the use of virus like nanoparticles as smart delivery vehicles; the development of enzymatic bionanoreactors as targeted and smart multimodality nanomedicines and as efficient catalysts for industrial applications.
