Daniele Dell Orco
Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences, Biochemistry Group
University of Oldenburg, Germany
Dr. Dell′Orco studied Physics and Biophysics at the University of Parma Italy and Lund Sweden. He obtained a PhD in Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia Italy. During his activity he visited several laboratories in Sweden and in Germany. He is currently A. von Humboldt Research Fellow at the University of Oldenburg Germany. On a regular basis he acts as a referee for several peerreview journals in the fields of Biochemistry, Biophysical Chemistry and Systems Biology.
The main scientific activity of Dr. Dell′Orco is focused on the experimental and theoretical characterization of protein-protein and protein-ion interactions involved in vertebrate vision. This includes systems biology approaches to unravel the biochemical mechanisms behind complex cell behaviors in photoreceptors during normal and disease-associated conditions. He is also involved in the computational analysis of nanoparticle-protein interactions in several biologic fluids and the perturbations exerted by nanopaticle-protein complexes on biochemical processes.
