Francesco De Angelis

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).

His main expertise relies on advanced nanofabrication techniques for applications in the field of Bio-Photonics and his research is currently supported by the European Commission through the IDEAS program (Consolidator Grant: n° 616213, “Neuro-Plasmonics”) and the “PROSEQO” project (FET open 2016-2019).

The first project aims at combining CMOS technologies with Photonics for the investigation of neuronal networks. In the second project, together with international consortium that he coordinates, they will try to develop radically new technologies for single protein sequencing.
