Rossella Labarile

Research Fellow - Bari

IPCF Bari Division

Research interests

Her research activity focuses on the development of hybrid bioelectronic systems based on photosynthetic organisms with the challenging aspect to improve the electronic communication between abiotic electrodes and the purple non-sulfur bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides by the use of conductive polymers. Currently, she works in the research group of Dr. M. Trotta financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation in the project “Photosynthetic bacteria in Self-assembled Biocompatible coatings for the transduction of energy” (Phosbury). Rossella is the author of over 10 scientific articles, a book chapter, and she is the co-organizer of the Symposium SB08: Bioinspired and Biological Polymers—From Living Organisms to Sustainable Functional Materials in Photonics, Electronics and Biology at 2022 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston (MA).
