Dr. Felix Ritort carried out his PhD during the years 1989-1991 in theoretical physics in the area of statistical physics. During the years 1992-2002 he made several contributions to the field of disordered systems and nonequilibrium physics. Since 2002 he worked in single-molecule biophysics by manipulating individual nucleic acids and proteins to investigate energy processes in the molecular world.
Isabel Pastor del Campo is postdoctoral researcher in the Small Biosystems Lab (http://ffn.ub.es/ritort/) at the University of Barcelona (Spain). She graduated in Chemistry from the University of Alcala in 1998 and got her PhD degree in Cell and Molecular Biology from Miguel Hernandez University in 2007.
Walter Rocchia graduated cum laude in Electronic Engineering on July 1996, with a thesis on Quantum Computing. In February 2000, he got a PhD in Electronic Devices at the University of Trento. He then was a Research Scholar at the Biochemistry Department of the Columbia University, developing models to calculate the electrostatic field generated by biological macromolecules in solution.
Dr. Francesco De Angelis is the director of the Plasmon Technology Unit at the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa. He got the master degree in Physics in 2000 (Università di Roma “La Sapienza”), then he spent a period (PhD) at the Institute of Photonics and Nanotechnologies in Rome (IFN-Cnr).
Denis Garoli, born in Padova in the 1979, get a master Degree in Physics in the 2003 at Padova University. In the 2008 awarded the PhD in Space Science and Technology at University of Padova with a thesis on the development of innovative technologies for the environmental conservation. In 2011 he get a Master Degree in Biotechnology at Padova University. Now is co-PI of the Horizon FET - ProseqO project in IIT.
