The laboratory philosophy relies on an inter- and multi-disciplinary approach, introducing the novel concept of “nanoimmunity-by-design” where the production and use of nanomaterials is not solely based on their physicochemical properties but also shaped by their predictable immune properties. The ImmuneNano-lab is currently involved in three major research lines, exploiting the immune properties of nanomaterials in different fields: Medicine, Human Health and Space Biology.

Advanced Material Pandemic Taskforce (AMPT)

Dr. Lucia Gemma Delogu is a member of the AMPT road map working group.



Advanced Material Pandemic & Future Preparedness Taskforce (AMPT) is an international Public-Benefit initiative focused on using Advanced Material to help solve some of humanity’s most pressing challenges.

As an international cooperative platform, the multidisciplinary taskforce is building a global infrastructure and an ecosystem network that enables the advanced material community to respond swiftly and effectively under the umbrella of Future Preparedness.
