SYSBIO seminars – Prof Francesco Pavone: Optical detection of functionality and morpho-chemistry for biomedical applications

On 31 May 2018, h 11.00,¬†SYSBIO will guest Prof. Francesco Pavone of LENS (University of Florence) for a seminar titled “Optical detection of functionality and morpho-chemistry for biomedical applications” in Milan.

The host, Director Prof Lilia Alberghina, is happy to welcome guests at University of Milano-Bicocca, Piazza della Scienza, building U3, room 2025 (2nd floor).

Francesco Saverio Pavone is directing a research group working in the field of biophotonics on single molecule biophysics, microscopy imaging-spectroscopy techniques, biomedical imaging, laser manipulation of bio-samples. These techniques have been applied both for single molecule biophysics, single cell imaging and optical manipulation. Pavone is authors of many internationals papers and editor of international books. He coordinates several European projects and he has organized several international congresses; he is also director of the LENS in Florence, and winner of a European Research Council Advanced Grant.

LENS was born as an European scientific research centre providing advanced laser and spectroscopic facilities for researchers from European countries and promoting and facilitating the exchange of ideas, scientific techniques, and technical skills.

The seminar is free. An on-site free registration could be required to access the classroom.

SYSBIO/ISBE.IT – Centre of Systems Biology – is a Research Centre and a Research Infrastructure (RI), the Italian Candidate Node for ISBE, the ESFRI project for systems biology.

SYSBIO is focusing on Systems Metabolomics (metabolomics techniques and metabolic models) to improve diagnosis and cure of different pathologies, like cancer, and improving healthy aging thanks to nutrition and wellness.


Showing impact on society

Diffusion and Impact

Contemporary science must be responsible to citizens, to the national and international communities that finances it. SYSBIO disseminates the results obtained and shares the concepts developed through specialized and non-specialist events. Seminars often involve people who are far from systems biology, but important to understand topics such as, for instance, complexity and epistemology.
