Biology and Biotechnology
Main role in the project:
Development of polymeric nanoparticles with RNA-driven therapeutics targeting meningeal fibroblasts and ex-vivo studies based on organotypic spinal slices.
The advanced therapies group was created in January 2008 at CNC and aims at generating fundamental and translational knowledge in the intersection of biomaterials with stem cells. The research group has two main avenues of research:
- Disease/ageing modeling and drug screening program
- Regenerative medicine, particularly focused in regeneration mediated by controlled delivery of drugs.
