Biography

Marco Capitanio is Senior Researcher at the Department of Physics of the University of Florence, Italy, and Group Leader at the European Laboratory for Non-linear Spectroscopy (LENS). He then obtained his PhD in Physiology. He then joined LENS, a research institute which is part of a European network of laser and spectroscopy facilities. His research interests lie across Physics and Biology. On one hand, his research is focused on the physics of biological systems and on the development of techniques for the study of biology at the molecular scale, with a particular interest on optical methods. On the other hand, he is particularly interested in the molecular mechanisms underlying mechanical regulation of biological systems and the conversion of mechanical signals into changes in gene expression and cell fate
