Claudio Nastruzzi was born in Ferrara on March 29, 1958. 1983 - Degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Ferrara, Department of Pharmaceutical Science. 1983-1984 - Fellow in the Department of Pharmaceutical Science of University of Ferrara, working on natural compound synthesis (prostaglandins and leukotriens) and characterization of isosazolic and isosazolinic nuclei reactivity. 1988 - Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Science, with a dissertation on the syntesis, antitumor and antimetastatic activity of aromatic polyamidines. 1988-1990 - Post-doctoral position at the Institute for Polymers of the Eidgenissische Technische Hochschule, (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) (ETH), Zürich in the group of Prof. P.L. Luisi. 1990-1991 - Post-doctoral position at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Ferrara, having as main topic the production and characterization of liposomes especially designed for retinoids delivery. Biophysical studies and activity on in vitro cultured cell lines. 1991-1998 - Researcher position at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Ferrara, investigating the production of microspheres, liposomes and microemulsions for the controlled delivery of biological response modifiers. 1998-2009 - Associated Professor at the Dipartimento di Chimica e Tecnologia del Farmaco, of the University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy. 2009-2012 - Associated Professor at the Dipartimento di Scienze Farmaceutiche, of the University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy. 2012-Present - Associated Professor at the Dipartimento di Scienze della Vita e Biotecnologie, of the University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy.Claudio Nastruzzi has published more than 150 papers (as reported in ISI Web of knowledge) and presented more than 100 contributions to national and international conferences.
Claudio's research focuses on the production and characterization of particulate delivery systems, including liposomes and microspheres for gene therapy and microparticles. The laboratory has also expertise in tissue engineering and cell encapsulation protocols (pancreatic islets, Sertoli cells, osteoblasts, etc.) and biocompatibility tests for the validation of biomaterials. The rapid prototyping section focuses on the design and development of small laboratory equipment for biotech applications and microencapsulation protocols.
