ICN2 #StayAtHome Seminar: DNA-based nanodevices for the detection of diagnostic antibodies

Prof. Francesco Ricci, from the University of Rome, offered on April 30 a webinar discussing DNA-based nanodevices. The seminar, hosted by ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi, Group Leader of the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, is now available on the ICN2 YouTube channel.

 

The behaviour of proteins and other biomolecular machines can be finely controlled with different chemical and environmental stimuli, including pH, antibodies, or enzymes, among others. Prof. Francesco Ricci, from the University of Rome, has exploited these characteristics to recreate in-vitro several mechanisms to control the response of DNA-based nanodevices for diagnostic and drug-delivery applications.

Last Tuesday 30 April, the ICN2 invited Prof. Ricci to discuss these issues in one of their #StayAtHome Seminars. The webinar was hosted by ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi, Leader of the Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group at the ICN2. If you were unable to attend or would like to re-watch this webinar, you can now do so on the ICN2 YouTube channel.
