I am currently a Chemistry PhD student and I work at the Instituto de Tecnología de Alimentos wich depends on the Universidad Nacional del Litoral. My research group is called "Biocoloides" and now I am trying to design a controlled release system for delivering of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) using natural biopolymers - proteins and polysaccharides - as a matrix to form core-shell-like micro or nanoparticles.

I´d like to participate in the IYC to increase my knowlegde and understanding of natural biopolymer macromolecular interactions to generate new ideas for the development of creative technologies that can be applied in the area of controlled release.
