Assembly of biopolymers into biomedical micro-nanodevices
Assembly and physicochemical characterisation of hybrid materials, based on polyccharides, peptides and nuclei acids, into nanostructured particles, films and hydrogels. The biofunctional and therapeutic properties of these devices will be evaluated by in vitro and in vivo studies.
