The Biomedical Imaging Group is active in Experimental and Translational Biomedical Imaging, with main focuses on Magnetic Resonance and Optical Imaging. The lab is equipped with a MRI Tomograph (Bruker, Biospec 4.7 T) and with an Optical Images (IVIS Spectrum, PerkinElmer).
The Nanomaterials Research Group is mainly engaged in the development of inorganic and hybrid organic-inorganic nanostructured nature for applications in the biomedical and energetics fields.
Recent studies include:
- development of biomaterials for applications in medical diagnostics
- functionalization of surfaces of nanocrystals
- colloidal chemistry of luminescent nanoscale systems
- study of the emission properties in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared regions for nanocrystalline systems.
