Major research interests

  • Investigation of biocompatibility of nanostructures, like carbon nanotubes, with biological fluids, cell cultures and tissue samples, useful as drug delivery systems in nanomedicine
  • Development of new analytical tools and techniques for proteome detection: combinatorial peptide ligand libraries (CPLLs) for “deep proteome” investigations and nano-analytical methods for protein determination
  • Analysis of the whole proteome by gel-based proteomics through the one- and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, western blot assay, mass spectrometry analyses and bioinformatics
  • Top-down proteomics approach by the selection of target proteins sequences available from the main databases (NCBI, Swiss-Prot etc..) to built a customized local database for selected proteins sources.  Expertise in performing bioinformatics for proteomics by means of MASCOT search engine, that enhances protein identification
