About

development and characterization of micro- and nano-devices for controlled release of molecules, particularly current drugs with high toxicity, low solubility and biodisponibility, severe secondary effects. Micro- and nano-particles and films devices based on biopolymers, hybrid systems and solid lipid particles were developed and characterized using spectrometric (vibrational, X-ray, MNR, DLS), microscopies (SEM, Confocal, TEM, etc...), thermogravimetric and other analytical techniques
