Daniela GUARNIERI Curriculum

Dr. Daniela Guarnieri got her Master Degree in Medical Biotechnologies at the University of Naples Federico II in 2003. From 2003 to 2006, she was PhD student in Biomaterials at the Department of Materials and Production Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II. During her doctoral studies, she contributed to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the interaction between cells and materials for applications in tissue engineering. From 2007 to 2010, she worked as PostDoc at the Interdisciplinary Resercah Centre on Biomaterials (CRIB) in Naples where she expanded her research interests in the study of the internalization processes and toxicity of nanomaterials, developing protocols to follow the intracellular trafficking of nanoparticles in endothelial cells. From 2010 to 2016, she was senior PostDoc at the Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Health Care (CABHC) - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Naples, where she studied the mechanisms to cross the blood-brain barrier, the therapeutic efficacy and the nanotoxicological effects of nanoparticles. From 2016 until the beginning of 2019, she was researcher in the group of Nanobiointeractions & Nanodiagnostics at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova where she extended her research in nanotoxicology and nanomedicine fields. From 2019 to 2022, she was a researcher (RTDb) at the Department of Chemistry and Biology “A. Zambelli” in the scientific disciplinary sector BIO13 – Applied Biology of the University of Salerno. From February 2022 to date, she is associate professor in Applied Biology (ssd BIO13) at the same department of University of Salerno.
