AFM litography

Loredana CasalisScientist at Elettra Sincrotrone

Loredana Casalis is a physicist with a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics.

Her expertise is in surface bio-functionalization and in the exploitation of scanning probe microscopies to investigate the biophysics of protein interactions, enzymatic reactions on surfaces, and to develop nanoscale devices for quantitative diagnostics and disease monitoring. Her group has optimized procedures for the nanografting of unstructured proteins relevant to neurodegenerative diseases, and to study fibrillation in-situ, on bare surfaces and in model membrane layers. She has also established experience with synchrotron radiation based structural and spectroscopic techniques.
