Nano Biotechnology





PNBT (Nano Biotechnology Platform) is a single-site infrastructure that uses technologies, tools and highly qualified technicians from a scientific perspective.

This laboratory deals with the development, scale up and technology transfer of nanoparticles and diagnostics systems.

It represents the main link between the research and molecular modeling associated with the identification of new lead compounds and their evolution towards products and attractive processes for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Area manager: Davide Prosperi
