OUR RESEARCH FOCUS
Crossing biological barriers
Formulate nano and microscarriers able to selectively interact with mucoses, epithelial and immune resident cells, to achieve the non-invasive delivery (i.e. inhaled administration).
Engineering and loading of extracellular vesicles to further use them as natural carrier systems of nucleic acids.
Design of prophylactic or therapeutic mRNA vaccines for pharmaceutical and veterinary uses.
Cancer combined immunotherapies
Use of the engineered nanotools, encapsulating different therapeutic nucleic acids, to become the next generation of cancer nanomedicines.
Synthesis of proprietary polymers as biomaterials to formulate polymeric nanoparticles for the controlled delivery of drugs and biologicals with capacity to cross biological barriers.
