Research areas

Her research has been focused on understanding the interactions of nano-sized material with cells for nanomedicine applications and nanosafety. This includes, among others, nanoparticle uptake kinetics, receptor interactions, uptake mechanism, intracellular trafficking and final fate inside cells in order to improve the design of nanomedicines and investigation of the potential effects induced by nanoparticles on cells. Additionally, she studies how the layer of biomolecules which adsorb on nanoparticles when in contact with biological environments (the so called nanoparticle corona) changes the identity and properties of nano-sized materials and how this affects the interactions with cells.
