Dr. Stefania Rapino is an Assistant Professor at the University
of Bologna since the 1th october 2012.
Dr. Stefania Rapino received her Master degree in Chemistry from
the University of Bologna in 2002, summa cum laude. She spent her
doctoral studies at the same University in the computational group
of the Chemistry Department, reaching the PhD in chemical Sciences
She spent research periods as visiting scientist at the
Interdisciplinary Electronic Spectroscopy Laboratory of University
of Namur (group of Prof. P. Rudolf); in the laboratory of
"Activation Moléculaire et Réactivités Electrochimiques" at the
École Normale Supérieure in Paris, under the supervision of Prof.
C. Amatore and at the ‘Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal – CNRS
Université Bordeaux-I' Pessac, France under the supervision
of Dr. Pénicaud. She has taken part in a number of European
research project collaborating actively with international research
During her academic career, she has gained and consolidated her
expertise in several theoretical and experimental fields concerning
surface chemistry, electrochemistry, scanning probe techniques and
scanning electrochemical microscopy, electrochemistry for
biological applications, simulation and dynamics for
nanotechnological and biotechnological purposes.
Dr. Rapino Stefania, has played a pivotal role in developing the
scientific cooperation between European Institute of Oncology (IEO)
and the chemistry department of Bologna University, involved in
projects concerning some of the most advanced topics of oncology.
She has very good skills in micro-probe development and
fabrication. Over the last years she acquired competences and
expertise at the cutting edge between biology/medicine and
physical chemistry/surface chemistry.
