University of Campinas & Lund University (internship), 2018 

 

 

 Her projetct involves the preparation of multilayered hybrid nanoparticles made up of poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) and polysilsesquioxane for the localized co-delivery of nitric oxide (NO) and antitumoral drugs. Self-organized and multicomponent hydrogels fot the topical NO release will also be produced with this polymeric system. This project is being developed under collaboration with Prof. Alexander Zelikin from Aarhus University - Denmark.

Matheus F. de Oliveira

Federal Fluminense University (B.S.)

     His project aims to the development of fully absorbable and nitric oxide (NO) releasing intracoronary polyester stents. It involves the investigation, synthesis, casting, and evaluation of polynitrosed polyester NO donors, pure and in blends, to try and provide the stent with a complete bioabsorption property and with localized release of NO, which in turn displays antiplatelet, anti-restenotic and pro-endothelial actions.

FAPESP Scholarship (2017)

Daniele M. Catori

State University of Maringá (M.Sc.)

     Her project concerns the development of injectable gels that are able to locally deliver nitric oxide for the regeneration of cartilaginous tissue. Absorbable hydrogels made up of hyaluronic acid and non-absorbable hydrogels made up of poly(vinyl acetate) will be prepared by in situ photopolymerization as well as 3D printing. 

CAPES Scholarship (2019)

Murilo I. Santos

University of Campinas, 2020 (M.Sc.)

  His project involves the development of photocrosslinkable hydrogels based on poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxde)-poly(ethylene oxide) triblock copolymers (Pluronics®) for Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D printing. The printed hydrogels will be loaded with NO donors and their biological action will be investigated.

Herllan V. de Almeida

Federal University of Ceará, 2020 (B.Sc. in Chemistry)

  His project aims to synthesize new NO donor molecules that might be incorporated into photocrosslinkable hydrogels for 3D printing NO-releasing biomedical devices. The NO donors will be encapsulated in polymeric nanoparticles that posteriorly will be added to the 3D printable hydrogels.

CAPES Scholarship (2020)

  • Undergraduate students

Mateus P. Bomediano

University of Campinas (B.S.) - current

     Mateus is working on the development of semi-interpenetrating hydrogels composed of poly(acrylic acid), pluronic F127 and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PAA/F127/PVA) for 3D-printing of biomedical devices. Hydrogels will be loaded with nitric oxide (NO) donors for local NO release.

  •  Post-Doctorate

 

Guilherme Fadel Picheth - 2017 - 2018

His project involved the synthesis of Pluronic F127 triblock polymers containing end-group modifications to release nitric oxide. The project´s goal was to preserve the polymer’s thermo-sensitivity and simultaneously provide activable NO-releasing moieties for wound healing applications. 

 

Mathilde Champeau - 2015 -2016

Her project was devoted to the synthesis of poly(acrylic acid)/PEO-PPO-PEO hydrogels charged with a nitric oxide donor. The hydrogels were molded as membranes and used in topical applications for improving wound healing. The project involved a collaborative work with the Faculty of Medical Sciences at University of Campinas, UNICAMP.
