Marta Bally

Forskarassistent at Department of Physics, Biological Physics

With my research, I would like to provide a physical understanding on the role and function of cellular membranes. Specifically, I am interested in elucidating the interplay between the overall membrane’s physicochemical properties and the fate of a biological recognition event. To address such questions, I adopt a multidisciplinary approach based on the use of artificial model membranes combined with surface-based sensing. Current research questions are mostly centered around the interaction between viruses and membranes. Other activities include the design of new vaccine vectors as well as the development of bioanalytical assays to test antiviral drugs, vaccines, or to detect viruses and exosomes.
