Postdoc positions available at CNR Institute of Nanotechnology Lecce. Project TITAN: Nanotechnology for cancer immunotherapy
Titan project will target Immunotherapy with genetically engineered T cells. Immunotherapy has achieved some spectacular success in clinical trials, but it is currently very expensive. This is partly due to the fact that it’s a highly personalized therapy and can’t be achieved by mass production…
Molecularly Imprinted Silk Fibroin Nanoparticles
Nanosized biomimetics prepared by the strategy of molecular imprinting, that is, the stamping of recognition sites by means of a template-assisted synthesis, are demonstrating potential as plastic antibodies in medicine, proving effective for cell imaging and targeted therapies. Most molecularly imprinted nanoparticles (MIP-NPs) are currently made of soft matter, such as polyacrylamide and derivatives. Yet, MIP-NPs biocompatibility is crucial for their effective translation into...

Una nano-sonda per fare luce sul corpo umano
Si tratta di una nuova tecnica non invasiva, che tramite la dispersione della luce fornisce accesso in situ a proprietà fondamentali dei tessuti, restituendo informazioni dall’interno del corpo umano. Lo studio, pubblicato sulla rivista Nature Communications, è stato condotto da Marco Leonetti, ricercatore del CNR - Istituto di Nanotecnologia di Roma assieme a Giancarlo Ruocco coordinatore del Center for Life Nano- & Neuro-Science dell’ISTITUTO ITALIANO DI TECNOLOGIA di Roma e con la collaborazione dei colleghi dell’INRIM Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica e dell’European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy (LENS)...
Spatial coherence of light inside three dimensional media
Speckle is maybe the most fundamental interference effect of light in disordered media, giving rise to fascinating physical phenomena and cutting edge applications. While speckle formed outside a sample is easily measured and analysed, true bulk speckle, as formed inside random media, is difficult to investigate directly due to the obvious issue of physical access. Furthermore, its proper theoretical description poses enormous challenges. Here we report on the first direct measurements...
