My scientific work is mainly focused on the development and characterization of Ln-based contrast agents and nanosystems for molecular imaging applications (MRI, PAI and OI). In particular innovative systems and procedures are under scrutiny for the characterization of tumour microenvironment (pH, vascular volume, hypoxia, enzyme activity, etc…) and for staging of tumour disease. Both relaxation- and CEST (chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer)-based agents are investigated.
