Research. Biomaterials and Bioinspired Materials
Preparation of uniform nanoparticulated systems by various techniques, preparation of stable colloids in water and other solvents, and application of the magnetic colloidal systems as contrast agents for MRI, hyperthermia and drug delivery.
The development of composite materials with new or improved properties than the ones obtained by the materials fabricated following the classical mixture rule. In this regard, the simultaneous control of the different-size (micro and nanoscale), morphology and distribution of the multiple components will be used as main tool to bring together disagreeing properties, to introduce new ones and to establish synergistic relationships between them.
Use of bioinspired routes for preparation of hierarchical and functional materials with applications in biotechnology and biomaterials. In particular, we are interested in the development of well suited multifuntional and structured materials for tissue regeneration.
