Nano-Biotechnology

Nano-biotechnology aims at the development of nanotechnology-based tools for biomedical applications. The bottom-up and top-down approaches, typical of nanotechnology, applied to biology and biochemistry lead to the development of nanostructured materials and devices to improve several fields of current biomedical research like Biomolecular Delivery, advanced and high resolution Imaging and Regenerative Medicine. Nanotechnology investigation tools of materials and surfaces applied to biology increase the basic knowledge ofself-assembly of biomolecules (as described in Biointerfaces) and of cellular mechanisms (Cell Biology). In the view of providing “point-of-care” diagnostic toolsand state-of-the–art approaches towards personalized medicine,microscale devicesare developedas described in the sections Lab on Chip and Biosensors & Bioelectronics. Nano-biotechnological applications are supported by the Modeling, Theory and Computation reported in the section Computational Biology.

Biomolecular Delivery

The major goal in designing nanosystems as drug delivery vectors is to control the release of pharmacologically active agents and to achieve the site-specific action of drugs at a therapeutically optimal rate and dosage regimen…

Cell biology

The research activities of this area at the cross-roads of materials science, nanotechnology and cell biology, primarily focusing on how newly-discovered materials and interfacial processes can be developed and used for specific applications…

Imaging

At NANOTEC several high resolution techniques are available for fine imaging of biomolecules, living cells and tissue. Mainly we focus on engineering of high-resolution molecular and semiconductor-based tools for fine fluorescence imaging…

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function…

Biointerfaces

Surfaces covered and functionalized with biomolecules play a key role in nano-biotechnology. At NANOTEC we study the biomolecules at interfaces with…

CNR NANOTEC c/o Campus Ecotekne

Torna con un calendario denso di appuntamenti, tra seminari, mostre, dimostrazioni sperimentali, visite ai laboratori  il tradizionale appuntamento con la “Settimana della cultura scientifica”, in programma all'Università del Salento dal 5 al 11 aprile 2017, nato dalle linee guida del progetto ministeriale “Piano Lauree Scientifiche”, al quale l’Ateneo salentino aderisce sin dalla fondazione nel 2003 per i Corsi di Laurea in Fisica e in Matematica.

Oltre millecinquecento studenti attesi dalle scuole superiori di Lecce, Brindisi e Taranto per partecipare agli incontri in programma che si terranno presso le sede del Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica “Ennio De Giorgi” e il CNR Nanotec.

L’obiettivo della “Settimana della cultura scientifica”, che si aprirà con una giornata interamente dedicata alle Nanotecnologie, è quello di avvicinare i giovani alla Scienza.
