Cristina Potrich


C.P. is senior researcher at FBK and associate to CNR-IBF. Her main interest are biofunctional surfaces applied to biosensors and Lab-on-a-chip for medical and agri-food applications (4 patents). C.P. graduated with honors in biology and obtained her PhD in Molecular Physiology and Structural Biology from UniPD, Italy. She also obtained the National Scientific Qualification as Associate Professor in Applied Physics (02/D1). Visiting scientist in many European laboratories, she co-organized several congresses (national and international) and international schools. She is referee for many leading journals and author of more than 60 papers published in international journals, book chapters and many contributions to congresses with review.
