During his ERASMUS+ program visit to CQM, Professor Bogdan-Cezar Iacob (University of Medicine and Pharmacy from Cluj-Napoca, Romania) will give a lecture on "Biomimetic molecular recognition platforms applied in Environmental and Biomedical Sciences", next 02 May 2024, at Campus da Penteada, Conference Room 0.57, from 15h00.

This oral presentation showcases the latest research outcomes of our group focusing on the rational design, development, and practical application of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) across diverse fields of applied sciences. Molecular imprinting technique enables the fast, versatile, robust, and cost-effective synthesis of biomimetic polymeric receptors with tailor-made selectivity towards a broad spectrum of target molecules. MIPs, serving as artificial receptors, exhibit quite unique and attractive features such as selectivity comparable to that of affinity biomacromolecules and a remarkable stability under various experimental conditions.
Professor Bogdan-Cezar Iacob investigations delve into the integration of MIPs in a wide range of separation techniques such as High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Capillary Electrochromatography (CEC), and Solid Phase Extraction (SPE), as well as their role as biomimetic affinity components in the development of electrochemical sensors. These techniques have been applied effectively in pharmaceutical, biomedical, and environmental sample analysis.
Furthermore, their application as drug delivery systems (DDS) were explored, showcasing their ability to offer sustained/controlled release of therapeutic agents.

Bogdan-Cezar Iacob, PhD. Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry, at the Faculty of Pharmacy, “Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. His expertise (>15 years) covers the synthesis of artificial receptors based on molecular imprinting and various fields of instrumental analysis (HPLC, HPTLC, capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography, electrochemical techniques (voltampotentiometry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, electrochemical quartz microbalance), solid phase extraction, molecular spectroscopy (ATR-FT-IR, Raman, SERS)) with applications in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and environmental sample analysis and drug delivery.
