Her research interests focus on the synthesis of peptidomimetics and other bioactive molecules as modulators of protein-protein interactions, with a wide experience in the field of integrin ligands synthesis and conjugation. She has also developed competences in performing in vitro binding assays on isolated receptors.
She has recently added the interest in nanomedicine and in particular in the synthesis and functionalization of nanoparticles to be employed as tools to study biological interactions or as drug delivery systems.
