Pierpaolo Moscariello successfully defended his PhD thesis. His work on “In vitro and in vivo investigation of dendronized streptavidin and fluorescent nanodiamonds, two flexible nanosystems efficiently crossing the blood-brain barrier to improve nanotheranostics in neurological disease treatment” was awarded the highest distinction "summa cum laude". Congratulations Pierpaolo!
Stephan Fischer (Graduate School in Medicine, Ulm University) defended his PhD on “Characterization of the uptake mechanism of bacterial protein-toxins and their inhibition by human peptides”. He is awarded summa cum laude for his exemplary work. Congratulations Dr. Fischer!
The department “Synthesis of Macromolecules” develops tailored nanomaterials for biomedical and materials science applications. It also designs and synthesizes precision macromolecules and hybrid materials that can, for example, enhance the uptake of viruses into stem cells thus offering great opportunities to improve gene therapy.
