Dr. Alberto Mittone has been awarded the SILS-MoLiRom Prize (link1) to a young researcher for biomedical applications of synchrotron light thanks to “his contribution to the development of new methods for phase-contrast imaging, a crucial methodology for the advancement of the field of biomedical studies with synchrotron light” (link2).
The Awardee holds a MD from Turin University (Italy), a PhD from Ludwig Maximilian Universität of Munich (Germany) and is currently working at the ID17 beamline (ESRF – Grenoble, France).
Awarding of the Prize was announced at the XXIII Meeting of the Italian Society of Synchrotron Light (link3) – SILS (link4) were Dr. Mittone delivered a talk to the International audience of the Meeting, that is part of the Italian program to celebrate the International Year of Light and Light Based Technologies.
