Our group works on Biomembranes and Drug Delivery Systems. We investigate the intermolecular and interfacial interactions determining the morphology and collective properties of self-assembling heterogeneous biomembranes. We use these materials to engineer lipid-based carriers of diagnostics and therapeutics for medical applications. Current projects include: environmentally responsive liposomes to improve transport and trafficking of chemotherapeutics in solid tumors, multifunctional liposomes for antivascular therapy, lipid-based carriers for targeted internal radiotherapy.
