Website Workgroup GDL
We are pleased to present the new website of the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry of the CNR, completely renovated in its graphics and contents. The website presents a more agile and interactive navigation aimed at making the multidisciplinarity of scientific research and technology transfer of the Institute known in a simple and direct way in its various local, national and international activities. It becomes a platform that integrates interactive contents, such as videos / photo-gallery, with the contribution of social media, and a section dedicated to news and events makes this virtual space dynamic and constantly updated.
A site that has grown a lot thanks to Antonio Greco's design and graphic commitment and the contribution of the working group made up of researchers and technicians from all four ICB offices. This new virtual space of the institute was created to be functional and best represent the institute through a constant and interactive update of its contents. It is therefore designed to be highly user-friendly also thanks to a contact section prepared with dedicated forms designed to collect various requests.
This platform does not fail to give visibility to the publication of competition notices, scholarships, doctorates and research grants as well as to act as a useful tool for students interested in carrying out their internship or experimental thesis activity in the laboratories of the Institute. Last but not least, the site presents areas dedicated to the visibility of the projects and agreements in which the institute is involved, the technology transfer activities and the visibility of its patent portfolio with the aim of attracting the interest of new companies and potential industrial partners.
The activity of the components of the GdL Website will be maintained through the constant updating of the platform also thanks to the inputs that will be sent by all the staff of the Institute.
Thank you from all the GdL Website members,
Antonio, Carmelo, Claudia, Elisabetta, Fabiana Fabrizio, Genoveffa, Guido, Ilaria, Maria e Vincenzo

Claudia HonischResearch fellow
Claudia Honisch received her master's degree in Pharmacy at the University of Padua on March 7th 2016, with an experimental thesis carried out as part of the Erasmus Project at Universität Regensburg (DE) entitled "Synthesis and pharmacological characterization of cabamoylguanidine-type histamine H2 receptor agonists "under the supervision of Prof. Armin Buschauer. In June 2016 she obtained the Qualification to Practice the Profession of Pharmacist. In September 2016 she started a scholarship at ICB-CNR Padua research site aimed at the "Characterization of thermal muds" of the Euganean thermal district. In October 2017 she started the PhD course in Molecular Sciences, curriculum Chemical Sciences, at the Chemistry Department of the University of Padua working on a project entitled "Aggregating proteins and their interaction with chemical chaperones" under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Ruzza (ICB-CNR). This work, which involved a close collaboration with the Diamond Light Source Ltd synchrotron facility (Didcot, U.K.) Beamline B23 for Circular Dichroism, was defended on March 24th 2021 in front of an international commission with the achievement of the title of Doctor Europaeus. Since September 2019 she holds a Research Grant within the AdriAquaNet Project, which is part of the EU Interreg V Italy-Croatia 2014-2020 Program. Within this context, the research activity has focused on the identification, synthesis and purification of peptide sequences with antimicrobial activity (antimicrobial peptides, AMPs) which allow to avoid the emergence of resistance to traditional antibiotics.
