As Editor-in-Chief of Magnetochemistry, I am pleased to announce the winner of the Magnetochemistry Travel Award for 2019.
The award has been granted to: Dr. Giuseppe Ferrauto, postdoctoral fellow at the Molecular Imaging Center, University of Torino, Italy.
Giuseppe Ferrauto’s research activity is essentially focused on four main fields: i) the development of highly sensitive metal-containing probes for MRI (T 1, T 2, and CEST agents) and their application in cell systems or in vivo; ii) the development of “smart” nano- or micro-carriers (e.g., micelles, liposomes, MSNs, RBCs, etc.) for the delivery of imaging probes and for the development of in vitro analytical assays; iii) the development of MRI procedures for the characterization of the tumor microenvironment (e.g., pH, temperature, vascular volume, etc.); iv) the development and characterization of probes for photoacoustic imaging.
It was a difficult decision with such high-quality applications for the awards, and we would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. We congratulate Dr. Ferrauto for his accomplishments.
Prof. Dr. Carlos J. Gómez García
