I am a full professor of polymer science in the Department of Bioresources and Polymer Science from Politehnica University of Bucharest. My research activity contributes to the development of knowledge in the field of polymeric biomaterials based on natural and synthetic compounds with biomedical applications (hydrogels, polymeric micro- and nanoparticles, hybrid biomaterials, composite materials – drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, cancer therapy etc.).
I hold a PhD in Engineering Sciences (UPB, 2007) and a PhD in Cell Biology obtained in 2009 in France (University of Angers, Faculty of Medicine). I participated in numerous research projects as coordinator/director or member in the research team (over 40 projects) related to the field of biomaterials and polymers. Now I coordinate an interesting project on the topic of Non-viral vectors based on polymeric nanoparticles for cancer gene therapy. Here cell culture protocol Glioblastoma cell are used to model brain tumors in conventional culture systems as well as in modern organ-on-a-chip platforms.
I am also the Head of the Laboratory of Advanced Processing Methods for Polymers and Nanomaterials, (LMAPPN) L1M1 since 2016. I am the Head of Department of Bioresources and Polymer Science since 2016 and Project team leader in Advanced Polymer Materials Group.
Research activity: over 70-ISI quoted papers (journals like Acta Biomaterialia, Biomaterials, Journal of Biomechanics, Materials Science and Engineering C, Nanomaterials, Molecules, Drug Delivery, Materials etc); books in the field of polymeric materials, biomaterials, solar cells, polymer processing, additives for polymer processing; numerous oral and poster presentations at International Conferences, invited lectures.
I am a member of the Reviewer Board of Polymers (IF 3.426), Reviewer Board of Gels and Topics Board of Materials (IF 3.057) and reviewer for many scientific journals.
