Research Interests

1) Oncological pharmaceutical nanomedicines development and further full characterization of the designed systems. Assessment of properties of the nanoscale developed colloids, focusing in the relation between processes and materials. Applications of the lipid-based carriers for the intracellular deliver of new RNAi strategies against metastatic cancer sub-populations (signaling cascades, intracellular pathways and transcriptional proteins). Interaction between nanoparticles and cellular targets: Intracellular nanoparticles trafficking, in vitro efficacy and toxicity and in vitro/in vivo nanoparticulate system efficacy. Evaluation of pulmonary or mucosal nanoparticles administration and further implications on their lymphatic uptake.
2) Bioethics
3) Intellectual Property
