Greta Bergamaschi studied chemistry in Pavia, where in 2014 obtained her PhD degree. She spent research periods in Germany (Department of Chemistry, TUM, Munich) and Switzerland (EPFL, Lausanne and UZH, Zurich). She received the Fernando Pulidori Award 2013 (6th edition) conferred by The European Group of Thermodynamics of Metal Complex (ISMEC 2013) to a young researcher author of an original paper. From 2014 to 2018, she has been postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pavia and the Politecnico of Milano. Since December 2018, she has a permanent position as Researcher at National Research Council of Italy in Milano. Currently her research interests are focused on the design and synthesis of new peptides for therapeutically oriented applications and for the development of self-assembled peptide based materials for bio immunoassays. Furthermore, she has gained extensive experience in the design and synthesis of fluorescent selective receptors for the recognition of biologically relevant charged species (e.g. metal ions). Moreover, she is expert in the thermodynamic and kinetic characterization of fluorescent molecules, and their complexes with transition metal ions (e.g. Zn2+ and Cu2+) in aqueous solution and in physiological environment. She also developed receptors containing coordinatively unsaturated metal centers, able to bind biologically relevant anionic species.
She serves in the Editorial Board of Frontiers in Chemistry in Supramolecular Chemistry section as Review Editor. Her research activity has produced 30 publications on international peer-reviewed scientific journals, 2 chapter book, several contributions to the proceedings of national and international meetings.
