Awards and Medals:
Award for innovation in research of the Italian Chemical Society, 2011
Medal Berti for Research in Carbohydrate Chemistry, 2012
Medal Quilico of the Division of Organic Chemistry of the Italian Chemical Society, 2015

The scientific interests concern organic chemistry at the interface with biomedicine, in particular nanocarriers for therapy and diagnosis, a field in which he coordinates the H2020 MSCA-ITN-2014 project NABBA Design and development of advanced Nanomedicines to overcome Biological Barriers and to treat severe diseases, with 11 European partners. Further interests concern nanostructured biomaterials for regenerative medicine, a field in which he has coordinated a national MIUR, PRIN 2011 project, Innovative chemical methodologies for smart biomaterials, with 8 partners.

Bibliometric parameters: 194 publications on international scientific journals with IF, 18 chapter of books, 12 patents, h index 32 (Google Scholar), 29 (Scopus).
