Academic Year  

Prof. Satriano's research activity focuses on the synthesis and the physicochemical characterization of hybrid nano-bio-interfaces, briefly detailed as follows:

A) Surfaces tailoring for triggered interaction with various systems of biological interest. The study of surface modifications – including the chemical structure, the surface charge, the surface free energy and the topography – induced by low energy ion beams (keV), cold plasmas, UV-ozone and/or wet chemistry treatments on: inorganic oxides (e.g., SiO2 and ZnO), polymers (both organic and inorganic) and nanomaterials (e.g., graphene, metal nanoparticles, ...) for the controlled modification of the interaction processes at the (bio)interface.

B) Nano- and micro-patterning for biomaterials and biosensors fields application. The application of integrated approaches of thin film deposition & surface modification (e.g., plasma, MOCVD, wet chemistry, casting, SAMs, etc.) and colloidal lithography for the topographic and chemical patterning of surfaces at the micrometer and nanometer scale. The study of protein adsorption, cell adhesion, peptide-lipid membrane interactions at the interface with the surface functionalized materials; the investigated bio-systems include various cell lines, lipids (liposomes and supported lipid membranes), proteins and peptides.

C) Nanomedicine. Multifunctional and smart nanoplatform for live imaging of biological processes in controlled drug delivery processes (theranostics). Development of nanoparticle-based sensors with fluorescence enhancement for real-time monitoring of intracellular metals dyshomeostasis.
