Materials Science PhD Norma Rosario Flores-Holguín is a researcher for the Advanced Materials Research Center in Chihuahua, México. She has more than 38 papers in Scientific Journals and 40 International Congress contributions. She is manager of the Molecular Modelling and Computational Chemistry Laboratory, where is carried out projects of design of nanocarriers for drugs with theoretical methods.Currently her research group has theoretically designed a drug-nanodiamond carrier for Tamoxifen with the aim of avoid the side effects and deliver tamoxifen to cells with improved efficiency. This protocol is now at In vitro phase in the bionanotechnology lab in her Institution.


Introduction The estrogen receptors (ER) have allowed offering a better prognosis to patients with breast cancer. The most common treatment is Tamoxifen (TAM), a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), which can inhibit... [ view full abstract ]
