Dr. Claudio Nastruzzi is working as Associated Professor at the Department of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, of the University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy. He did his Post-doctorate fellowship at the Institute for Polymers of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, (Eidgenissische Technische Hochschule; ETH), Zürich in the group of Prof. P.L. Luisi in 1988-90, and also in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Ferrara, having as main topic the production and characterization of liposomes especially designed for retinoids delivery. Biophysical studies and activity on in vitro cultured cell lines.
Dr. Claudio Nastruzzi has published more than 180 papers and presented more than 130 contributions to national and international conferences.
Dr. Claudio Nastruzzi started the activity of the Laboratory of Biomaterials & Encapsulation (BEL). The main goal of the Laboratory is an integrative concept of research and teaching in the fields of biomaterials, bioencapsulation, drug formulation and drug delivery. Currently are under investigation different formulations including, inorganic matrixes, liposomes, lipospheres, microparticles, nanocapsules, microemulsions and polymeric films. Another important field of study of BEL is represented by cell encapsulation and transplantation using natural, synthetic and engineerized polymers.
