We are very happy to announce that we already have Gabriela Garrastazu with us as a Project Leader. The DIVERSA team keeps growing!


Gabriela’s professional path


She has been devoted to nanoparticle research, where she has participated in numerous collaborative research projects. Some of these works showed how nanoparticles are suitable systems for efficient delivery of simvastatin to the lung.

On the other hand, she also participated in preparing and characterizing the physicochemical properties and the in vivo biodistribution of nanoparticles in view of an improved delivery of the statins to the brain.


Committed to improving health span through new drug delivery solutions


Gabriela has always been seeking strategies to improve health, and these are her words when we asked her about her motivations and how they have led her through her professional path:

“A long time ago, I decided to dedicate my life to improving people’s lives and helping them to suffer less from diseases. For this reason, I developed my thesis in the nanopharmaceuticals technology research group of the University of Rio Grande do Sul. I continued my research in Australia, Brazil, and Portugal, always exploring new neurodegenerative disease treatments and taking advantage of nanotechnology: my work was focused on developing and characterizing drug delivery systems.

At DIVERSA I will use my experience in drug delivery systems to bridge the gap between innovative discoveries and their clinical application”.


DIVERSA team is gaining talent and reaching ‘the next level’. Welcome on board, Gabriela!
