Family of bioactive heparins-coated iron oxide nanoparticles with T1-positive magnetic resonance contrast for various biomedical applications

Hugo Groult


Hugo Groult first graduated a Master in medicinal chemistry from “National School of Chemistry of Lille”. During this training, he specialized in the pharmacology of natural products while strengthening an international education with placements in India, Denmark, and Spain. He next got a grant from the European program Marie Curie to achieve his phD in nanomedicine at CNIC- “Spanish National center for cardiovascular research”. He is now working for the French CNRS laboratory LIENSs at the University of LaRochelle where he is in charge of the nanovectorisation of modified polysaccharides extracted from natural resources for diagnosis and treatment of cancer.


Unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) are well known for their anticoagulant properties with a large clinical use. There is also currently a growing interest in using heparins in targeted cancer... [ view full abstract ]
