Forskning

My research during my PhD aimed at developing novel inorganic materials for bone regeneration. During my first postdoc I evaluated the biological properties of such materials, paying special attention to inflammatory response.

Currently I am a researcher at Uppsala University, working in the EMBLA group. I started developing an improved in vitro model of the blood-brain-barrier. It does not exist yet a relevant clinical model to test the efficacy of a drug to cross the blood-brain-barrier. Therefore, having a reliable in vitro model would allow decreasing the number of animal lives sacrificed nowadays to perform these tests.

Right now I am aiming to use my knowledge on biomaterials, in vitro studies and microfluidics to create a new microfluidic device that will allow to study the biological properties of biomaterials aimed for bone regeneration.
