About

Expert in preparation, characterization and biomedical applications of organic-inorganic nanostructured materials in which different properties (i.e. chemical,  magnetic, stimuli responsive) are properly tailored and combined into single nano-objects. My current  research interests focus also on the development of materials for applications such as drug delivery, magnetic hyperthermia, photo-thermal ablation and radiotherapy exploiting cation exchange reactions. My research group at IIT covers research activity from the development of materials to their in vitro and in vivo characterizations.
