Current Research Interests
Filippo Rossi research activity is focused on soft materials both on macroscopic and nanoscale, their physico-chemical characterization and study of their biological compatibility in vitro and in vivo together with their ability to control the release of drugs.
In particular his activity is focused on hydrogels, which can be formed at the site of application from soluble or dispersed precursors through an in situ gelation process, based on a 2-stage first physical (aggregation) and then chemical (covalent bond formation) cross-linking.
Moreover, his interests involve also colloidal particles: objects characterized by a sub-micron size and by a kinetic stability towards aggregation provided by an appropriate composition of their surface.
In parallel with the experimental activity Dr. Filippo Rossi is also involved in two types of model-based studies:
