We are the Fabris Lab. We work on integrating novel nanomaterials chemistry and characterization approaches to computational tools for the design of new plasmonic nanoparticles. Our nanostructures are excellent platforms for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and for the generation of hot electrons. We are primarily interested in the application of these nanomaterials in biology and medicine, in particular for early cancer diagnosis and patient stratification and for understanding viral evolution.
PS. Follow us if you want to know more about nanostars and SERS! And drink a good espresso while at it.
