Professor at „Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Scientific profiles



Rares Stiufiuc performed research activities in the field of nanobiotechnologies and in the field of matter properties at the nanoscale using near field microscopy/spectroscopy for different types of atomic and/or nanostructures: single quantum states, nanowires, quantum dots and self-assembled macromolecular networks.
He has important contributions in the development and characterization of new multifunctional nanohybrids (magneto-plasmonic nanoparticles, magneto/plasmonic liposomes, anisotropic plasmonic nanostructures) for biomedical applications such as targeted drug delivery, molecular ultrasensitive detection in biological fluids using vibrational spectroscopy, chiral separation, early cancer detection using Raman/SERS.
He managed and coordinated as PI several national and European research grants in the field of nanomedicine, and he is the first author and co-author of 63 scientific papers in highly ranked scientific journals (Science, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, International Journal of Nanomedicine, Talanta, Journal of Colloids and Interface Science, Applied Physics Letters, Nanoscale Research Letters, Physical Review B, etc).
