Prof. Antonella Macagnano

CNR – Rome, Italy

Antonella Macagnano is a senior research scientist at the National Research Council (CNR) (since 2001). She graduated in Biological Sciences at the University of Lecce, Lecce, Italy, in 1993 and obtained a professional degree as Biologist in 1994. She got her Ph.D. in Sciences, Technologies and Biotechnologies for Sustainability from University of Tuscia in Viterbo, Italy (2020). Mainly, her research activities have concerned the study, design, characterisation and optimisation of chemical (nanostructured electrospun polymers and ceramics, metallo-porphyrins, cavitands and metallo-oligomers) and biological membranes (oligopeptides, bio-polymers) for selective interactions with both gases and volatile organic compounds. Since 2008, she has been the leader of a synergic group of researchers cooperating into a CNR job-order called “Bio-inspired sensor systems and technologies for space and human health safety” within the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (CNR) in Rome. She has been involved in several international and national research projects focused on the design, improvement and implementation of sensor devices for health, environment and agri-food industries. Currently she is conducting her research activity, within Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research (IIA-CNR) in Rome.
