Dr. Stefania Sabella is Researcher at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova. She holds a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry and a multidisciplinary background spanning from nanotechnology, to nanotoxicology, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and biochemistry. Author of about 40 papers, 5 patents, 2 book chapters, she is Task Leader in NanoREG1_ Framework 7 research project, WP leader in ITS-NANO_ Framework 7 research project, P.I. for IIT in NanoREG2_H2020, IIT member of GRAPHENE_FP7-ICT-FET Flagship. S.S is Committee member of ISO/TC 229/JWG2 and CEN/TC 352/WG 1/PG 2. She is also author of several contributions (invited and oral) to international conferences.
Main Research interests
In particular, her current works focus on:
- Molecular mechanisms governing NP-cell interactions;
- NP grouping by physical-chemical properties/mode of actions;
- Standardized analytical protocols/methods to characterize NP fate in biofluids relevant for human exposure and for nanoregulatory;
- Bio-nano-material design with theranostic properties based on biomimicry of natural biological transporters (BSA NPs).
