Design of nanoparticles that can be used to reduce the inflammation that occurs, especially in the lungs, when infected with SARS-CoV-2. The project will make it possible to understand how iron oxide nanoparticles (NPOH), which are normally used in magnetic resonances or for the treatment of anaemia (FeraSpin™y Feraheme), interfere with the reproduction of the virus, as well as to design NPOHs that can be used to reduce the lung inflammation generated in some cases of SARS2 infection. These nanoparticles could also be used to mitigate the inflammation caused by a high number of inflammatory diseases.
