Roxane RIDOLFO – French
Engineer in Chemistry and Physics - Master’s degree in Polymer and Formulation
Bordeaux Institute of Technology - Bordeaux INP Graduate School of Chemistry, Biology and Physics
PhD Student in TU/e Eindhoven – Bio-organic Chemistry – Pr. Jan van Hest Group
Born and raised in France, Roxane has developed a passion for nanomedicine. Before graduating in 2016 with a MSc in Chemistry and Physics with a speciality in polymers and formulation from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie, Biologie et Physique de Bordeaux (Pessac, France), Roxane did two internships working on drug delivery systems. First, she worked in the Pr. Vincent Rotello’s group at UMASS (Amherst, Massachusetts, USA), where she developed polymer-based nanospheres for delivery applications (cancer therapy and biofilm treatment). Then, she joined the Pr. Jan van Hest’s group at the Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands), where she worked on biodegradable polymer-based micelles formulation and characterization for drug delivery to treat leukemia.
Nowadays, Roxane is a PhD student at TU/e (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), linked to Pr. Jan van Hest’s group. Her project is called Particle Shape Effect and takes part of the European framework NANOMED.
