Dr Marta Roldo
I graduated in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology at the University of Padova, Italy. After a postgraduate research placement funded by the European Oncolgy Institute of Milan working on PEGylation of avidin for tumour pretargeting, carried out in Prof Paolo Caliceti's laboratory in Padova, I joined the research group of Prof Andreas Bernkop-Schnuerch in Vienna to investigate the mucoadhesive properties of thiolated chitosan.
I obtained my PhD from the University of Portsmouth, UK for my work on azopolymers for colonic drug drug delivery and became a lecturer at the same university in 2005. I am currently a senior lecturer in pharmaceutics in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences where I am continuing my research in drug delivery and novel biomaterials.
- Biomedical applications of carbon nanotube
- Development of composite bioceramics
- Development of peptides drug delivery systems
