Lorenzo Albertazzi is currently Junior Group Leader at Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) in Barcelona leading the Nanoscopy for Nanomedicine group. He studied Chemistry in the Universities of Pavia and Pisa before obtaining his PhD in Biophysics from Scuola Normale Superiore. After research periods at the University of California Santa Barbara and the Eindhoven University of Technology he moved to Barcelona in 2015. His research combines chemistry and advanced microscopy with the main goal of achieving a single molecule level understanding of synthetic materials behavior in the biological environment and to use this knowledge to design novel materials for biomedical applications.
