The research of the group is mainly focused on the design, synthesis, and in vitro/in vivo characterization of contrast agents for diagnostic and theranostic applications at preclinical level. Besides the use of small-sized paramagnetic Gd(III) complexes, new nanosystems aimed at the MRI visualization of specific biomarker, or drug release have been prepared. Another research line deals with the development of procedures for cellular imaging.
