GUGLIELMO LANZANI is the Coordinator of the Center for Nano Science and Technology (CNST) of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) at the Politecnico di Milano where he also teaches in the Department of Physics. Lanzani has long been involved in cutting-edge research in the field of organic conductors based on carbon and nanotechnology with potential revolutionary applications, including the study on the artificial retina, of which its results were published in Nature Communications. The objective of this study is the development of a device that permits recovery of vision in people who have suffered damage to photoreceptors. Lanzani is also one of the scientists who will be at the helm of the laboratories of the “Human Technopole”, the great Italian research center that will be housed in the area that hosted the Expo Milan World’s Fair in 2015.
Guglielmo Lanzani has co-authored over 200 publications in international journals, published several monographs in journals, and authored the book “Photophysics – behind photovoltaics and photonics” (Wiley, 2012). A member of several International, conference boards, he is also active in several, cross-border collaborations as a research project coordinator.
