ABSTRACT: First, I will briefly present an overview of the Rome’ branch of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), the Center for Life NanoScience (CLNS), including the more recent developments and projects. These are mostly oriented toward the development of new tools for imaging, tissue engineering, iPSC expansion, drug delivery, etc. Particularly attention will be devoted to a new super-resolution microscopy technique, to the high throughput Brillouin microscopy and to animal-based biosensors.


BIOGRAPHY: Prof. Giancarlo Ruocco is full professor of Condensed Matter Physics at Sapienza University of Rome since 2000. His expertise is in the development of new instrumentations for the spectroscopic investigation of disordered solids, glasses an liquids. More recently his interest moved towards the development on new imaging techniques for studying biosystems.  In 2004, he founded and directed (until 2008) the Research Center "SOFT" of the INFM. From Nov 2007 to Gen 2013 he has been the director of the Physics Department at Sapienza. From 2010 to 2014 he has been vice-rector for the politics of the research at “Sapienza” University of Rome. In the year 2009-2010 he has been co-proposer (and since 2011 director) of the “Center for Life NanoScience (CLNS)”,a laboratory of the Italian Institute of Technolgy (IIT). The center is devoted to the multidisciplinary approaches of two specific pathology, SLA and brain tumors, with a composite staff (30 PostDoc and 30 PhD) from different disciplines (Biologists, Chemists, Engineers, Medical doctors, Physicists).
