Scientific Publication – 08/2017

Our first paper reporting the basic of our RiboLace technology Active ribosome profiling with RiboLace is now public available on bioRxiv. The paper describes a novel method based on an original puromycin-containing molecule capable of isolating active ribosomes by means of an antibody-free and tag-free pull-down approach. RiboLace is fast, works reliably with low amounts of input material, […]

Viero’s Lab published In vivo translatome profiling reveals early defects in ribosome biology underlying SMA pathogenesis in bioRxivpreprint. The results described suggest that neuronal tissues and cells are particularly sensitive to perturbations in translation during SMA, and identify ribosome biology as an important, yet largely neglected, factor in motor neuron degeneration

Immagina Biotechnology s.r.l. raises € 0.48 million, Nov 2016

28th November 2016, Immagina Biotechnology s.r.l, a privately held company that is developing the first technology for active ribosomes isolation, today announced that it has raised €0.48 million in new funding. The round was funded by existing investors, Harald Oberrauch (Technicon S.p.A.), and Hermann Hauser Investment Gmbh


Immagina BioTechnology has been selected by the Italian Trade Agency for a trade mission to San Francisco and Boston. We had the opportunity to speak in a showcase eventat at the CIC and at J&J. We experienced a thrilling business opportunity! We thank the organisation for planning great meetings with leading invited speakers and for organizing networking […]

Publications from the IMMAGINA scientific network (2015)

Our new collaborative paper Global translation variations in host cells upon attack of lytic and sublytic Staphylococcus aureus α-haemolysin has been published  in Biochemical Journal. Our results reveal the importance of translational control during host-pathogen interaction. Viero’s Lab published  RiboAbacus: a model trained on polyribosome images predicts ribosome density and translational efficiency from mammalian transcriptomes in Nucleic Acids Research. RiboAbacus is […]

CARITRO grant, 2015

April, 2015. We thank the CARITRO foundation for supporting our joint project with the National Research Council, called RiboTIP (PolyRIBOsomes on microplaTes for Innovative Products). We welcome Dr. Luca Minati, he will join our team working on nano- and micro- solid surfaces.
