Dr. Castronovo's research program is in the area of experimental biomolecular nanoscience. A primary goal is to develop innovative approaches to profile protein and nucleic acids in highly heterogeneous tissues, with single-cell resolution. An underlying theme of his research is to join fundamental with applied research. Experimental approaches include the use of atomic force microscopy and nanolithography to study nucleic acid self-assembly on surfaces and in solution, with the goal of developing functional nanodevices.
