Marco Carofiglio earned his bachelor’s degree in Physical Engineering from the Polytechnic of Turin in 2017, followed by a master’s degree in Nanotechnologies for ICTs, also from the Polytechnic of Turin, in 2019. Finally, he obtained a PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2023.
Throughout his PhD and postdoctoral period in Turin, specifically at the Trojan NanoHorse Lab led by Valentina Cauda, Marco worked on smart iron-doped zinc oxide nanoparticles, that can be stimulated by remote physical stimuli to induce selective cancer cell death.
Currently, Marco Carofiglio holds the position of postdoctoral fellow at the Mario Negri Pharmacological Research Institute in Milan, Italy. He recently joined Professor Luisa De Cola’s group. His current research focuses on silica-based organic/inorganic hybrid nanoparticles tailored for stimuli-responsive drug delivery.
