The course represents the
first teaching of Nanotechnology and aims to provide
the knowledge of nanovectors currently
used in the delivery of biologically active ingredients. In general, the
student will be able to: describe the structure, functions, and applications of
the main classes of nanocarriers; explain the mechanism of action for the
release of active substances for the purpose of biological activity. The
student will acquire the main techniques
characterizing nanocarriers as a function of the chemical-physical property to
be defined

The aim of the course will
also be to provide information on the substances to be used in the formulation
of the nanocarrier and in particular on the
most common functionalization techniques
targeted delivery with strategies based on active or passive transfer.

Particular attention will be paid to the delivery of
biological and biotechnological active ingredients for various fields of
