Dr. Lucia Gemma Delogu, Ph.D., is the Head of the ImmuneNano-Lab at the University of Padua, Italy. She acquired her experience in Immunology and Material Science at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles (USA). She has served as Visiting Professor at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD, Germany) in 2016/2017. She has been the Scientific Coordinator of two interdisciplinary EU projects, including a RISE project, on nanomedicine and immune interactions of NMs, involving more than 10 leading Institutions and international high-profile scientists on nanotechnology and nanomedicine. In this field, she has received several awards, including the “Marie S. Curie Individual Fellow” at TUD under Horizon 2020 from the European Commission, the “200 Young Best Talents of Italy 2011” from the Italian Ministry of Youth, and “Bedside to Bench & Back Award” from the National Institutes of Health, USA. She pioneered the use of high-dimensional single-cell approaches in the context of carbon-based NMs. Her research focuses on the biological interactions of NMs and nanoparticles, with a particular focus on their immunomodulation for biomedical applications.
