Metals in Medicine

Description

Metals in medicine are the subject of the medicinal inorganic chemistry, which bridges the areas of inorganic chemistry and medicine. Metal-based materials, metallodrugs, and agents for treating and detecting disease, their synthesis, structure, and general properties, as well as biological applications on cellular and living system level, are of principal interest.

The mechanisms of action and the roles of these metals in cellular regulation and signaling in health and disease are of principal interest. The interactions of synthetic inorganic complexes with living systems and their components are an additional area of interest. These areas are linked by the need to involve researchers having a deep understanding of inorganic chemistry in medically relevant research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The preparation and properties of metal-based drugs and biomaterials
  • The synthesis, characterization, biological behavior, and pharmacological activity of coordination and organometallic compounds
  • The synthesis and characterization of metal complexes with biologically relevant molecules
  • Quantitative structure-activity relationship of metal-based drugs (QSAR)
  • Metal complexes as diagnostic agents
