In the following a 15 minutes video guide to show a very basic implementation in COMSOL Multiphysics of the poroviscoelastic model proposed in “Caccavo D. & Lamberti G. (2017). PoroViscoElastic model to describe hydrogels’ behavior. Materials Science and Engineering: C 76: 102-113, DOI: 10.1016/j.msec.2017.02.155 ”. Aim of this guide is to provide an initial aid […]
It has been published on-line (Volume 525, Issue 2, Pages 291-418 (20 June 2017)) the special issue of International Journal of Pharmaceutics devoted to the siRNAs delivery topic. siRNAs are promising new drug molecules. The special issue has been edited by GroupTPP, and our research is well presented on the volume. More info are here.
Recently the TPP group, within the frame of project PRIN 2010-11, has participated to the production of a special issue entitled: “New Trends in Gene Therapy: Multidisciplinary Approaches to siRNAs Controlled Delivery” published on Current Drug Delivery. In the following the Editorial: Nucleic acid based drugs (NABDs), powerful in principle, can be of great importance […]
