Micro-Nano-Bio Systems and Targeted Therapies Laboratory

The Micro-Nano-Bio Systems and Targeted Therapies Lab is grounded on a strongly interdisciplinary approach and on a cross-fertilization between mechatronics, materials science, biotechnologies and molecular biology, with the aim of developing new therapeutic systems at different scales.
In this framework, artificial and bioartificial bionic organs are targeted, made of mechatronic systems and advanced implantable materials. Biomaterials for regenerative medicine are also pursued, in synergy with the optimization of technologies for physical stimulation of cells and tissues. New flexible and scalable biohybrid machines, integrating living cells and tissues with artificial components, are also explored.
Finally, miniaturized drug delivery systems are pursued, to face cancer and other severe pathologies in a highly targeted way.
