Our research is broadly aimed at the understanding and developing novel lipid-based and polymeric nanoparticle platforms for molecular imaging, drug delivery and non viral gene delivery applications with a focus on structure, function and engineering processes. Our multidisciplinary approaches encompass a variety of chemical, polymeric, molecular biological and analytical methods. More specifically, the current inquiries also address the design, synthesis and characterization of nanoscopic materials and contribute to the overall research orientation of the Consortium for Translational Research in Advanced Imaging and Nanomedicine (C-TRAIN).
