We combine nanobiomaterials chemistry, advanced microfabrication technologies, and bioimaging to develop advanced 3D in vitro models as innovative tools for drug screening and mechanobiology.
We synthesize nanostructured
biomaterials (nanofibers and nanoparticles) for the controlled release of active principles with the aim to:
augment the delivery efficiency;
precisely reach the biological target, limiting undesirable off-target activities.
We design and engineer innovative biofabrication strategies for tissue engineering applications and for 3D in vitro disease models.
We have expertise in the derivatization and functionalization of naturally derived polymers for the synthesis of custom-tailored bioinks.
Microfabrication & microfluidics
We leverage microfabrication processes to design microfluidic platforms for the following applications:
advanced in vitro models (organ-on-a-chip);
sensors and biosensors.
