Introduction to biocorona in silico modeling around nanoparticles
Prof. Dr. Vladimir Lobaskin, University College Dublin Prof. Dr. Martin Himly, Paris Lodron University of Salzburg
22 Oct 2019

Protein corona around nanoparticles (NPs) have a strong impact on the functionality and bio-effects of NPs. Interactions of biomolecules at the NP surface can be quantified and different entities can be compared. Estimations of the proteins' affinity can be done resulting in assessment of selectivity of binding of certain entities or even elucidation of preferred interaction sites. This may give rise to epitope hiding or, vice versa, an accumulation on the NP surface.

The recorded webinar gives attendees teh perspective to estimate what to expect from using the tools provided by the UCD partner through the NanoCommons e-infrastructure platform.

A short Q&A session by the online attendees is also recorded and may give further insight on the applicability of teh in silico modeling tool for experimental researchers or students involved in nanosafety assessment.

Further training can be provided by transnational access. For application check out the service menu.
