Leonardo Venturelli

Leonardo Venturelli took his degree in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology at the University of Bologna, Italy in February 2009. He worked for 3 years for a pharmaceutical spin-off in Bologna, after that he decided to enroll at the PhD School in Nanotechnology at the University of Trieste. He is developing microfluidic devices for biological samples studies, in particular to isolate Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) from blood. He has a good knowledge on: optical lithography technique, PDMS replica molding, microfluidics simulations, microfluidic device studies, magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) synthesis, MNPs functionalization with organic compound, tumoral cells culture.

International Congress:

- 9th International Symposium on Minimal Residual Cancer, 25-27 of September, Paris, France: "Organic Functionalization of Magnetic Nanoparticles for CTCs recognition", presented as poster.

- 6th From 2D Biology to 3D Medical Solutions, 23-31 of August, Vipava, Slovenia: "Microfluidic Devices for CTCs isolation and enrichment ", oral presentation.

Pubblications: He is author of an international patent concerning oligonucleotides synthesis and modification: WO2013124807.
