Speakers: Dr Francesco Cellesi, University of Manchester

Innovative injectable biomaterials based on nanoparticulates have recently reached pre-clinical and even clinical stage, representing a real breakthrough in drug delivery and diagnostics. Moreover, nanoscale building blocks (self assembling peptides, block copolymers, nanoparticles) have shown promising results as injectable precursors for the in situ generation of hydrogels for tissue engineering.
We are currently exploring different nanomaterials for the encapsulation of biological/bioactive payloads (cells, enzymes or inorganic photocatalytic materials) which can be potentially injected in vivo without provoking any immune reaction. These new responsive nanoparticles/nanostructured biomaterials will be presented from the point of view their physico-chemical characteristics, designed to achieve full control over morphology, porosity, and bio-activity.
