Organic synthesis Targeting ligands for cancer cell biomarkers – Chemical functionalization of bioceramics – Coating and post-functionalization of metal oxide imaging nanoparticles – Polymer modification and characterization – Hydrogel microspheres for cell immobilization

The research activities of our group are devoted to the development of new chemical entities for bio-applications. We are mainly interested in the design, synthesis and evaluation of functionalized nanomaterials and biomaterials for therapeutic applications as imaging probes, theranostics and cell transplantation devices.
