In thispost for online science exhibition, we will learn about examples of DNA systems powered by antibodies presented by Lorena Baranda Pellejero from Ricci’s lab at University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Still following us? Then you should be about to become an expert in DNA nanotechnology! Well, maybe that was a bit too optimistic, but still, you can’t deny you already have an insight on the field thanks to Yash; you’re able to see in your laptop screen DNA structures whose sizes are 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair thanks to Joakim; and also, you witnessed the controlled movement of these little things thanks to Rafa.
Now that we all were given the chance to introduce ourselves… let’s move for the series of free-topic posts! This is going to be interesting 😉
In this post I want to highlight why I think the research that all of us are doing here and therefore, my job, is essentialand why it should be supported more than ever.
My name is Lorena Baranda and I come from Palencia (Spain), the city where I was born and raised. The reason you are reading about me today is because I am part of the 15 fortunate students who will be involved for 3 years in this research network, and I will be working at University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy) in the Francesco Ricci Lab.
