Álvaro Artiga

I completed a Graduate degree in Biotechnology in the University of Zaragoza in 2014 and a Master’s degree in Nanostructured Materials for Nanotechnology Applications in 2015 working on different gold nanoparticles for optical hyperthermia treatment. After working for some months in Nanoimmunotech Inc. in plasmonic biosensors, I have been performing my PhD in the Institute of Material Science of Aragon (CSIC-University of Zaragoza). My research line is focused in siRNA functionalisation of gold nanoparticles and their microencapsulation by Inkjet technology for oral administration for colorectal cancer treatment and functionalisation of gold nanoparticles with different molecules for SPRi detection of RNA.
