Design and synthesis of new peptides for therapeutically oriented applications and for the development of self-assembled peptide based materials.
Design and synthesis of fluorescent selective receptors for the recognition of biologically relevant charged species (e.g. metal ions).
Thermodynamic and kinetic characterization of fluorescent molecules, and their complexes with transition metal ions (e.g. Zn2+ and Cu2+) in aqueous solution and in physiological environment.
Greta Bergamaschi studied chemistry in Pavia, where in 2014 obtained her PhD degree. She spent research periods in Germany (Department of Chemistry, TUM, Munich) and Switzerland (EPFL, Lausanne and UZH, Zurich). She received the Fernando Pulidori Award 2013 (6th edition) conferred by The European Group of Thermodynamics of Metal Complex (ISMEC 2013) to a young researcher author of an original paper. From 2014 to 2018, she has been postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pavia and the Politecnico of Milano. Since December 2018, she has a permanent position as Researcher at National Research Council of Italy in Milano.
