Summary

Davide Normanno is a single-molecule bio-physicist with a passion for optics and microscopy and fascinated by how complex and tightly regulated processes governing biological systems emerge from interactions of molecular constituents subjected to stochastic behaviour.

The purpose of Davide’s scientific activity is to gain insight into the interplay of physical and biological mechanisms that shape and govern living cells. To this end, Davide develops and applies advanced optical and imaging tools to directly visualize and quantify, in situ, dynamical processes and biochemical reactions in vitro and in living cells, at the single-molecule level. Davide’s work is mainly focused on the study of protein-DNA transactions, in transcription and gene expression regulation and in DNA repair and genome integrity maintenance, as well as of cytoplasmic transport properties and cytoskeleton self-organization dynamics.
