Special Issue in European Biophysics Journal:

Special issue "Nanoengineering for Mechanobiology" of the European Biophysics Journal.

Guest editors: Silvia Caponi, Aldo Ferrari and Massimo Vassalli

I work in bio-photonics: applying light-based technologies to the fascinating word of life sciences (more info).

My recent scientific interests include:

-microscopy and spectroscopy approaches to address the bio-mechanics at the single cell and tissue level

-development of imaging and spectroscopy devices for biomedical and environmental applications
