nanoERT approved for funding by ELA International

Uncategorized
European Leukodystrophy Association (ELA) International has approved our grant application ELA 2019-008I2 entitled “nanoERT - Nanoparticle based Enzyme Replacement Therapy for the treatment of Krabbe disease: a pre-clinical study in the Twitcher Mouse” for funding! This will allow us to speed-up our research for finding a method to deliver functional GALC into the brain of the mouse model of Krabbe Disease. The first results of this research were just published on Science Advances [https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/5/11/eaax7462] #ELAInternationsl #krabbe #CNR #nanoparticles

Braiker wins the Star Cup Toscana 2019

Uncategorized
Un progetto imprenditoriale di Scuola normale superiore e Istituto nanoscienze del Cnr ha vinto l’edizione 2019 di Start Cup Toscana, la sfida tra idee innovative scaturite dal mondo della ricerca universitaria che si è svolta questa mattina presso il Polo Fibonacci a Pisa e vedeva partecipare 10 finalisti. La futura startup si chiamerà 'Inta Systems' per il settore Biomedico, ed è stata presentata da Marco Cecchini, ricercatore dell’Istituto nanoscienze del Cnr e Matteo Agostini, della Scuola normale superiore, che ricevono un assegno da 5.000,00 euro per lo sviluppo dell’idea imprenditoriale. 'Inta (INTelligent Acoustics) System' nasce per sviluppare e commercializzare un dispositivo completamente elettronico, Braiker, che consente di individuare la presenza di traumi cerebrali da analisi del sangue. Una tecnologia pensata per aiutare la diagnosi e ridurre al minimo il ricorso ad esami costosi, lenti e invasivi quali la risonanza magnetica e la TAC. Il dispositivo, brevettato quest’anno, è nato all’interno…

MDPI Sensors – Special Issue on Surface Acoustic Waves Biosensors and Microfluidics

Uncategorized
The journal Sensors has just launched the Special Issue "Surface Acoustic Wave Biosensors and Microfluidic Devices", for which Marco Cecchini is acting as Editor. Authors are encouraged to submit novel research papers and reviews, with areas of focus that include, but are not limited to: 1. Surface Acoustic Waves as a biosensing tool: SAW biosensors, SAW-actuated biosensors, SAW interaction with biological species (e.g., cells), functionalization strategies, multiplexing strategies, integration methods; 2. Surface Acoustic Wave microfluidics for breakthrough applications: SAW-induced acoustophoretic devices, SAW-induced acoustic streaming devices, SAW-enhanced biosensing technologies, SAW-actuators, multiplexing strategies, sample preparation. 3. Surface acoustic wave–fluid interaction and biosensing: Modeling/simulation. https://www.mdpi.com/…/surface_acoustic_waves_biosensors_an…
