Engineering of the cell surface by applying of nanocoatings and the prospects of this technology in the creation of biological tissue and organ regeneration. The use of ceramic nanotubes as containers for the targeted delivery of drugs to humans and animals. New technologies for dyeing and preserving hair using ceramic nanotubes: why global cosmetic corporations became interested in this technology and when we will see them on the market. Biotechnologies and history: experience of successful application of ceramic nanotubes in the field of preservation of cultural heritage objects. These topics are discussed in our conversation with the Doctor of biological sciences, the Head of the Research Laboratory of Bionanotechnology of the Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology of KFU, Rawil Fakhrullin.

Scientists from Kazan Federal University, together with colleagues from the University of Palermo (Italy), have developed a safe and effective emulsion for the restoration and preservation of stone cultural monuments. The research team offers a new strategy for developing an emulsion based on ceramic nanotubes and a mixture of biological polymers (chitosan and pectin), reports Rawil Fakhrullin, chief research officer of the Bionanotechnology Research Laboratory of Kazan Federal University.

Scientists from Kazan Federal University, together with colleagues from the Technical University of Louisiana, have developed a new safe technology for hair dyeing based on clay nanotubes. An experiment on hair coloring was carried out in the laboratory of Bionanotechnology (KFU). The dye fills the empty space of the tubes, which spontaneously form a thin layer on the surface of the hair, reports Rawil Fakhrullin, chief research officer of the Bionanotechnology Research Laboratory of Kazan Federal University.

In new work, reported in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces ("Nanohydrogel formation within halloysite lumen for triggered and sustained release"), researchers from Kazan Federal University and the University of Palermo show that a hydrogel can be confined within the cavity of halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) by means of an easy strategy.

The article "Paclitaxel Encapsulated in Halloysite Clay Nanotubes for Intestinal and Intracellular Delivery" presents the possibility of forming tablets using the natural clay nanotubes halloysite, loaded with anti-cancer drug paclitaxel. It showed obvious toxicity of the drug-loaded nanotubes in relation to the cancer cells. Halloysite drug composites can be employed for tablet compression where halloysite serves a dual purpose of being a drug delivery vehicle and as a novel tablet excipient.
