Marino Lavorgna, research scientist of Institute for Biomedical and Composite Materials of National Research Council, received a degree in industrial chemistry at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, in 1997 and the Ph.D. degree in polymer materials at the Department of Materials of Loughborough University, UK, in 2009. His main research interests at the IMCB-CNR include the following topics: production of hybrid membranes for fuel cell applications by sol gel method, development of hybrid epoxy coatings, and nanostructured epoxy matrix for fiber reinforced composite, development of hybrid materials based on sol-gel approach as thermal insulation foams, development of innovative nanocomposites by using porous inorganic nanoparticles as carrier of active compounds to be used in the food packaging application, and characterization of nanocomposite by small angle X-ray scattering analysis. He published 45 papers on international scientific journals and also he is author of 30 papers on reviewed conference proceedings and four contributions in books. He has the partnership in two national patents and two international PCTs. Presently, He is a component of the Scientific and Technological Committee of IMCB-CNR. He currently acts as a reviewer for some international journals. He is a component of the winner team of the International Polymer Challenge Price 2007 awarded by Veneto Nanotech and Imast Scarl presenting the business project HYPUCEM.
