Though my university education was oriented towards organic chemistry, I soon moved closer to analytical chemistry after receiving my degree in 1995. My first work experience was a one-year stay at a quality control laboratory of the Italian Army by which I fulfilled my compulsory military service. After the completion of my duty, I spent one year working for my former university, and subsequently I moved to The Netherlands in order to attend a six-month stage at TNO Pharma, a CRO involved in applied research. After my stage, I was employed by TNO Pharma with a five-year contract. During these five and a half years at TNO I focused more and more on the bioanalytical field, in particular on biological mass spectrometry either off-line or on-line after CE or LC-based separations. My molecules of interest were mainly proteins and peptides. Having my contract a mixed formula employee/PhD student, parallel to my research in protein and peptide profiling using capillary techniques I have been often involved in projects assigned to TNO by mid to large pharmaceutical and biotech companies. These projects usually consisted either in impurity profiling studies of synthetic drugs/peptides or in separation/structural characterisation of protein or peptide mixtures. Towards the end of my contract, I personally took care of two projects from start (project proposal) to end ( final report), practically acting as project leader. In 2004 I moved back to Catanzaro, first as research fellow, and then as assistant professor (2007). I continue working with nanoscale chromatography and mass spectormetry for proteomics applications, focusing on the development of analytical methods for high-throughput serum proteomics. Specialties: LC-MS, biological mass spectrometry, quantitative proteomics
