How to build made-to-measure antibodies

Antibodies are an important defense mechanism of our body, recognizing the presence of pathogens and enabling them to be eliminated. However, their effectiveness can be improved through biomedical engineering, which allows them to "construct" more specific ones and extend their lifespan.
In the feature dedicated to technology in collaboration with La Regione, this month we hosted Luca Varani, Group Leader at the USI-affiliated Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB), to find out how the creation of these "made-to-measure antibodies" works.
Nowadays, technology and information technology play a fundamental role in our daily lives. Their constant presence offers opportunities and challenges that are not always easy. To help us better understand these often complex issues, the daily newspaper La Regione proposes a monthly column in which, throughout 2022, USI professors and researchers will provide insights into the various dimensions that characterise the digital age.
