Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites

Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites

The N&N Group’s research is mainly focused in the rational synthesis of nanoparticles and nanocomposites and the study of their structural-functional properties including those related to the nano/bio interfaces. The group vision is to see our materials impacting in some aspects the field of nanomedicine. Specifically:


Elegans as in-vivo model to assess nanomaterials.

Bio-based hydrogels for tissue regeneration

Contrast Agents for in-vivo Imaging

New Drug Delivery Nanocarriers
