Head of lab


Our lab focuses in the use of chemical tools including nanoparticles to understand biological processes in pathological conditions. Among other materials, we use Quantum Dots (QDs) as luminescent particles to visualize molecular targets and monitor enzymatic activity. QDs offer a great potential to study biological systems due to their optimal photoluminescent properties and their versatility of conjugation to different biomolecules. Parallely, we work with peptides for different applications including cell penetrating systems and conjugation to nanoparticles.
