About

Dr. Pradip Das received his B.Sc. (Hons) in 2009 and M.Sc. in 2011 in Chemistry from Vidyasagar University, India and Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, respectively. Then he completed his Ph.D. in Science under the supervision of Prof. Nikhil R. Jana from the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, India (degree awarded by Jadavpur University, India). He finished his first postdoctoral research with Prof. Ulrich J. Krull at the University of Toronto Mississauga, Canada and also finished his second postdoctoral research with Dr. Davide Prosperi at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. Currently, he is doing postdoctoral research with Dr. Teresa Pellegrino at the Italian Institute of Technology Genoa, Italy. His research interests focus on the design and synthesis of functional nanoparticles and their validation in cancer therapy.

Interests
