Professional Duties

Multimodal inorganique and polymer-based nanoparticles (NPs), for cancer and cardiovascular applications
Polymer- and lipid-coated iron oxide magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for low-frequency magnetic actuation of cancer cell death (NP preparation and characterization)
miRNA-loaded nanoparticles to enhance endogenous anti-oxidative response after myocardial infarction (unloaded and loaded NP preparation and characterization, in vitro and in vivo response)

Research focuses

Targeted multimodal inorganique and polymer-based MNPs for cancer cell death through mgnetically-induced mechanical rupture of cancer cell membrane and/or other cellular compartments; imaging; cardiovascular applications
Targeted multimodal polymer-based NPs as treatment for myocardial infarction, using micro-RNAs to promote redox homeostasis, among other reparative/regenerative approaches. Dissection of cellular mechanisms behind those cellular processes
