Eliana D’Amone was born in Campi Salentina (Lecce, Italy) on 27th October 1980. She graduated in chemical-biological technology in 1999 from High School Lecce and she is a qualified specialist in bio-organic and microbiological chemistry. She attended a three years training stage focused on the environment pollution analysis. Since 5th Novembre 1999 she works at the CNR Institute of Nanoscience University of Salento (Lecce, Italy) as chemical-biological technician, in the Nanobiotechnology division under the direction of the Prof. Rosaria Rinaldi. In August 2000 she attended a stage in the Laboratory of Surface Science at the University of Liverpool (England), implementing the techniques of characterization of surface and semiconductor. In April 2003 she attended a course certificated from the University of Lecce “Insurance and hygiene for technicians responsible for chemical and biological laboratories”. Since August 2001 she works at NNL.
