Massimo Bottini's Research Focus

Arthritis

A novel nanotechnology approach for osteoarthritis 

Dr. Bottini’s goal is to fabricate efficient and biocompatible nanoparticles to deliver cargo into osteoarthritic chondrocytes and reestablish cartilage homeostasis. His laboratory discovered that graphitic nanoparticles are able to deliver cargo into osteoarthritic chondrocytes in vivo and is optimizing the cargo delivery efficiency and biocompatibility of nanoparticles in the joints of arthritic mice.
