Dr. Filippo Bertoli

joined the Centre for BioNano Interactions as a visiting student in October 2009, and, later as a PhD student from April 2010. Since then, he has been working on the cellular uptake of magnetic nanoparticles and on the possible use of their understanding the kinetics of magnetic properties as a new tool in the study of by cells nanoparticle-protein interactions in situ in cells. Filippo works closely with Dr. Anna Salvati in performing this research.

Filippo was funded via an ESF EpitiopeMap research neutralising programme- exchange grant and is now a PhD student in the SFI SRC BioNanoInteract.

 After graduating with a B.S.c in Sanitary biotechnology from the University of Padova (Italy) in 2006, Mr. Bertoli went on to take a Masters in Medical Biotechnology with a specialisation in NanoBiotechnology at the University of Trieste (Italy). He did his thesis on the possible use of carbon nanotubes as a tool for drug delivery across the blood brain barrier.
