Dr. Caterina Alfano
Caterina Alfano is Group Leader in Structural Biology and Biophysics at Fondazione Ri.MED, Palermo (Italy). Her experience spans across structural biology, biophysics, molecular biology and protein biochemistry. In particular, her Group aims at providing biophysical and structural information of biological phenomena guided by folding, aggregation and interaction of proteins with the ultimate goal of understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying serious pathologies. The Group also support the Ri.MED Drug Discovery Unit for the screening and the identification of hits and leads. To the consortium she can provide expertise of protein NMR and biophysical screening.
