Approaching event:

European Conferences on Biomedical Optics 20-24 June 2021 Munich-Germany

TOPIC: "Emerging Technologies for Cell and Tissue Characterization"

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

submission deadline 15th April 2021

The primary goal of this journal is to advance the understanding of biological structure and function by application of the principles of physical science, and by presenting the work in a biophysical context. The journal publishes a wide range of article types, including:

  • Original Articles and Biophysics Letters

  • Reviews.

  • Technical Primers, providing a comprehensive but focused summary of the development and application of a technique.

  • Methods papers.

Research interests

My research interests concern the use of spectroscopic techniques for non contact bio-mechanical and bio-chemical analysis of biological cells and tissues.
