Tomas Bata University in Zlin

Antonio Di Martino received his Bachelor (Industrial Chemistry) and Master Degree (Industrial Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry) in 2011 from the University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy. In 2013 he joined the Centre of Polymer Systems, Tomas Bata University in Zlin, the Czech Republic where was awarded PhD in Chemistry and Material Technology in 2016 defending a research work based on the encapsulation of bioactive compound in biopolymeric matrices. At the moment he is a senior researcher at the Centre of Polymer Systems in Zlin, Czech Republic, in the Bioactive Polymer group and his main attention is focused on developing innovative formulations based on polysaccharides for drug delivery applications. In 2016 he joined the National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University as a Postdoctoral Research in the Department of Technology of Organic Substances and Polymer Materials and his research work mainly focused on the development of hybrid nanocarrier for drug delivery and diagnostic. In 2019 he became associate professor and member of the Research School in Chemistry & Applied Biomedical Sciences at Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia. He is supervisor and consultant of Master and PhD students and his work is focused on the development of hydrogels for controlled delivery of bioactive compounds for application in pharmaceutical and biomedical area. His primary research interest is the development of nano- and microcarrier based on biopolymer for multiple encapsulations and controlled delivery of bioactive compounds. He has to his credit to 23 publications indexed in Web of Science (h-index 9) and active participation in projects financed by Czech Ministry of education, Russian Ministry of Education and European Union and author of one patent.
