Palermitan researcher awarded Antonio Borsellino Prize for Best PhD Thesis in Biophysics

In occasion of the closing day of the XXVII national congress of Sibpa, organized by the Society of Pure and Applied Biophysics, which took place in these days in Genoa, the thirty-year-old researcher from Palermo Sara Anselmo (in the photo) received the Antonio Borsellino Award, named after one of the pioneers of Italian biophysics, for the best doctoral thesis in the field of biophysics.

The event took place at the Palazzo della Borsa, where Sara Anselmo had the opportunity to present the main results of her doctoral work, carried out at the Department of Physics and Chemistry of the University of Palermo. Her research focuses on clarifying the molecular mechanisms and forces that drive the interaction between proteins/peptides and membranes, which are the basis of physiological, pathological, and therapeutic processes. The researcher’s work also proposes a new experimental approach that could have significant applications in various scientific fields.

“I thank my team, with whom I work every day – the researcher concluded – and Professor Valeria Vetri, for the constant support and for always believing in me.”
