Nano – Bio Interactions

Studies of interaction of nanomaterials with biological systems

Several scientists have pointed out that lack of knowledge in the interaction of nanomaterials with biological systems can seriously limit nanotechnology potential. Thus, part of our research activity aims to give a contribution to this field by investigating nanoparticles intracellular trafficking, their capability of crossing the biological barriers, nanotoxicology or their potential antimicrobic effect in vitro e in vivo
