Andrea Margari (1994) graduated in Biology (Bio-sanitary curricula) in 2019. He carried out the master’s thesis with the title “REALIZATION OF A LAB ON CHIP TO DETECT BIOMARKERS OF NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES “at the CNR-Nanotec Institute of Nanotechnology. In particular he contributed to the realization of an immunochip capable of detecting the TDP43 protein and the TAU protein; both proteins that are candidates for possible early biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.
In 2020 he got the qualification for the profession of biologist.
From 2021, he is a PhD student in Nanotechnology at the CNR-Nanotec and University of Salento and is part of the Omnics research group. His research activity concerns the realization and optimization of a 3D model of a blood brain barrier on chip capable of allowing the mapping of the distributions of nanoparticles (NPs) in the vascular and perivascular regions for a better understanding of the distribution and efficacy of the drug in both physiological and pathological conditions.
