SmallTalks: Graphene-based biosensors for bacterial infection

​​​​Welcome to a seminar in the series SmallTalks [about Nanoscience] arranged by the Excellence Initiative Nano​
Speaker: Flavia Ferrara, Doctoral Student at Chemistry and biochemistry/Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Ever heard of the word triazole? well, what if I say that a triazole is a molecule that can be useful to detect bacterial infections? In the presentation, I will go through the making of a ´´Biosensor´´. In this device, triazoles are put together to form a receptor having selective interactions with some peptides derived from bacterial disease. This receptor will then be attached to graphene that, thanks to its formidable conductive properties, will give us an easily detectable signal when the interaction occurs.​
The seminar will be held both live and on Zoom
