  • Project Leader: Dr. Marcela MIHAI
  • Funding programme: Fundamental and frontier research
  • Subprogram: Exploratory research projects
  • Contract Authority: Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI)
  • Project code: PN-III-P4-ID-PCE-2020-1541
  • Project title: Zwitterionic porous microparticles containing zein and betaine moieties with antimicrobial activity and drug delivery capabilities
  • Acronym: ZwitterZein
  • Project duration: 04.01.2021 – 31.12.2023
  • Budget: 1.198.032,00 lei

 

The necessity to increase the treatment efficiency in medical and pharmaceutical fields has led to the improvement of the already existing drug carriers and to new methods for the development of drug delivery systems with various sizes, morphologies and properties.

The ZwitterZein project main objective is to design novel macromolecular supports based on zwitterionic porous microparticles containing zein and betaine moieties in order to obtain efficient drug delivery systems for both hydrophobic and hydrophilic drugs as well as novel antimicrobial materials with possible medical applications.
