Natalia Vtyurina was trained as a fundamental physicist at Lomonosov Moscow State University (2011). She successfully graduated as a PhD in biophysics from Bionanoscience department at Delft University of Technology (2016) where she studied DNA-protein interactions at single-molecule level. This experience prompted her to proceed further towards a new challenge in biomedical research. With the ultimate purpose of discovering how to maximize the delivery efficiency of engineered nano-sized drug carriers, she has completed postdoctoral research project in the field of nanomedicines at University of Groningen (2019) under supervision of Dr. Anna Salvati. Within this project she was building up a live-cell imaging platform to characterize internalization and trafficking of nanoparticles by human cells. Being social and communicative she is actively contributing to dynamic, fast moving and multicultural environment of the Controlled Release Society (CRS). In 2019 she established a new CRS BeNeLux & France Local Chapter and was elected to be a president.
