Summary

 

Overview

Nuria is interested in the rational design of bio and nanomaterials for disease-specific delivery of therapeutic agents, in order to maximize the efficacy of treatments, while minimizing the side effects. She is currently developing a DNA nanotechnology-based platform for actively harvesting and releasing growth factors in 3D to repair bone. She is also working on devising nanocomposite hydrogels to attain temporal control over delivery of cell-selective nanoparticles for wound healing.
