CORSI GROUP

WHAT THE CORSI GROUP DOES?

For about 10 years, the Nanomedicine team has been involved in the advancement of nanotechnological applications for medicine. In detail, the team has contributed in publishing a number of papers concerning the development of targeted nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Various areas of interest are explored with the aim of optimizing nanosystems capable of solving important medical issues, such as the treatment of particularly aggressive breast cancers, or the early diagnosis of Chron's disease. Main achievements are the specific delivery of drugs and/or contrast agents in the regions of active disease and the development of nanodelivery systems able to overcome biological barriers. Current top topics of the group are the following:

• Nanoparticles for the targeted treatment of cancer

• Chemotherapeutic approach based on nano-drugs

• Nanostructured contrast agents for early and targeted diagnosis of IBD

• Targeted nanotherapies for IBD

• Nano-drug delivery across the Blood-Brain Barrier

WHAT SERVICE DO WE OFFER?

The expertise of the Nanomedicine team consists in the characterization of the interaction between the nanocomposite and the biological systems, and in the investigation of nanoparticle’s therapeutic efficacy, through analysis of cellular uptake, binding, specificity of interaction (main techniques include cytofluorimetry, confocal and electronic microscopy), efficacy and toxicity using appropriate in vitro and in vivo models.

The group has also good expertise in formulation of therapeutic compounds in protein nanocages and in the morphological characterization of organic and inorganic nanoparticles (Electronic Transmission and Scanning Microscopy).

Anyone who wishes to use the equipment listed below should demonstrate proper knowledge and capability of handling it or to have received appropriate training.
