10th Biomedicines Webinar

Plasma Sources, Plasma Treated Liquids Chemistry and Their Therapeutic Potential in Cancer

Plasma medicine is a dynamically developing interdisciplinary field, with many biological applications. The effects of cold atmospheric plasma are mainly based on the production of various chemical species, which can vary according to the plasma devices used and the types of liquids treated.

In this webinar, the description of a novel approach to the chemical characterization of plasma-treated liquids will follow an overview of the main types of plasma sources, with a final focus on applications in cancer treatment.

Researchers in different disciplines, from life sciences to chemistry and physics, are welcome to attend in order to find out more about plasma medicine. The webinar is open to beginners who want to approach this promising field, as well as to more experienced researchers in search of novel insights in plasma mechanisms and applications.

Bio
Viviana di Giacomo is an Associate Professor in Human Anatomy at University G. d’Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara, Chieti, Italy. She has been studying for more than 20 years the molecular mechanisms at the basis of cellular response to exogen factors, namely antitumoral drugs, neuroprotective and antioxidant products, natural extracts and biomaterials. Cytotoxicity, apoptosis, cell cycle, cytokine release, protein expression, molecular signaling, morphology, cell organelle modifications are some of the numerous parameters that she evaluated in different experimental models. Prof. di Giacomo coordinates a research group and holds a wide numbers of collaborations with colleagues from different fields of expertise: pathology, pharmaceutical chemistry, dentistry, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, engineering, pharmacology, biology, pharmaceutical botany. Her interdisciplinary research is actually focused on investigating the molecular biological mechanisms at the basis of cold plasma effects on tumoral and normal cell lines. She is member of the research group which has recently been founded by NextGenerationEU and PNRR under the program Boost for Interdisciplinarity, University of Chieti-Pescara, for the project “COld atmospheric plasma therapy to target head and neck Tumours by A multImodaL approach (COCKTAIL)”.

Vittoria Perrotti is an Associate Professor in Science of Health Professions and Applied Medical Technologies at University G. d’Annunzio of Chieti-Pescara, Chieti, Italy. Her scientific activity is focused on translational studies for the treatment of oral diseases with advanced technologies and biomaterials, and has led to about 200 research articles, 100 proceedings, several presentations in national and international congresses. Her research has been featured from the beginning by a strongly interdisciplinary and curiosity-driven approach, which allowed her to carry out innovative research efforts at the interface between different disciplines, such as oral pathology, materials science, implantology, oral surgery, histology, cellular and molecular biology, and micro/nanotechnologies. Recently she has been founded by NextGenerationEU and PNRR under the program Boost for Interdisciplinarity, University of Chieti-Pescara, as PI for a project on “Cold atmospheric plasma therapy to target head and neck tumours by a multimodal approach (COCKTAIL).”

Plasma Jet and Cell Culture Media – A New Approach by Ion Chromatography
Bio
Emilio Martines is associate professor of plasma physics at University of Milano-Bicocca, Milano, Italy. He developed the first part of his scientific career as a researcher of the National Research Council of Italy, working in the field of nuclear fusion research at Consorzio RFX in Padova, where in 2007 he was appointed as head of one of the research groups operating there. At the time, his main interests were turbulence in fusion plasmas and the formation of helical states in toroidal devices. However, he always kept an interest in low-temperature plasmas, which led him to work on magnetron sputtering plasmas and MPD thrusters for space propulsion. He subsequently developed an interest in plasma medicine, which led him to be the lead author of the first research paper published in this field by an Italian group, and finally brought him to the University of Milano-Bicocca, where he is responsible of plasma medicine activities. He is author of more than 170 papers published in refereed journals, more than 100 papers in proceedings of international conferences, and of 3 patents, two of which related to plasma medicine.

Plasma Jet and Cell Culture Media – A New Approach by Ion Chromatography
Bio
The research activity is aimed at the development and validation of chromatographic methods for the qualitative and quantitative determination of biologically active molecules in human and animal, cosmetics, food, and environmental complex matrices. These procedures have been applied to different analytes and drugs/drug associations also finding application in clinical and pre-clinical studies, to characterize new delivery systems of the active principle to improve their pharmacological properties. In the development of the method are applied predictive models and chemometric both for the optimization of extraction protocols and for final data processing. Particular attention is given to the innovative (micro)extraction techniques and new instrumental configurations for complex matrix quantitative analysis. Scientific activity is proven by more than 230 publications in International peer-reviewed Journals, by 17 book chapters and 7 books, by more than 34 oral and 160 poster communications at National and International conferences. He is member of the research group which has recently been founded by NextGenerationEU and PNRR under the program Boost for Interdisciplinarity, University of Chieti-Pescara, for the project “COld atmospheric plasma therapy to target head and neck Tumours by A multImodaL approach (COCKTAIL)”.
