Dr.Andrea Danani

Title: Elucidating the Role of Surface Chemistry on Cationic Phosphorus Dendrimer-siRNA Complexation

Biography

Andrea Danani received the Dipl-Ing degree in Physics from ETH in Zuerich in 1987. After the Ph.D. degree at SISSA/ISAS in Trieste in 1992, he worked as postdoc for many years at several Physics Departments (Politecnico di Torino, Università Statale of Milano and Università di Genova) and as scientific collaborator by the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS). His scientific activity was first centered on the modelization of many-electron systems and their phase transitions and the description of surface diffusion of adatoms in metals using analytical models and several numerical simulation methods. Since 2000, Prof. Danani works at SUPSI, where he received the Professor title in 2006. He has been project leader of many industrial and academic projects related to the numerical simulation and modelization of systems mainly at the molecular level: 

Research Interest
