I use big microscopes to look at small objects.

Research profile

Lorenzo Albertazzi is an associate professor at the TU/e department of Biomedical Engineering leading the research group "Nanoscopy for Nanomedicine". For most of his career he has been jumping between Chemistry and Biophysics; in his research he now aims to combine both to achieve a molecular understanding of synthetic materials and their interactions with the biological environment, using optical microscopy and nanoscopy.

 

Academic background

Lorenzo Albertazzi obtained a MSc in Chemistry (2007) and a PhD in Biophysics (2011) from Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy). He then joined Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands) as postdoctoral researcher. In 2013, he was awarded a fellowship of the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS) at TU/e, and in 2014 he became a NWO/VENI fellow (2014). In 2015, he moved to Barcelona (Spain) to the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) to start the 'Nanoscopy for Nanomedicine' group. He received an ERC starting grant in 2017 and a VIDI grant on 2019. In 2018 he was appointed Associate Professor at the TU/e department of Biomedical Engineering.
