Background and activities
I am a PhD student in Molecular Medicine. My research is in the field of Nanotoxicology. It is focused on the inflammatory potential of engineered nanomaterials and the underlying mechanisms of action. Of interest to me are especially those nanomaterials used (or are intented to be used) in biomedical applications.
