Dr. Giovanni Longo

Giovanni Longo is a first researcher at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche in Rome, at the Istituto di Struttura della Materia. As an expert in scanning probe microscopies and high-resolution characterization techniques, he has focused on the interdisciplinary studies combining physics and biology for biomedical applications, employing AFM in innovative ways, and combining this technique with Raman or IR spectroscopy. Expanding on this background, he is among the main developers of the Nanomotion sensor, which he has applied to different experimental fields. Within the ERASE project he is responsible for the nanomotion experiments to study in real time the effect of iron depletion in Staphylococcus aureus and to assay the real-time response of these bacteria to the inhibitors developed within the project.
