Alessandro received his PhD from the University of Milan (2012) working on chemical methodologies for the synthesis of peptides and peptidomimetics. He was then Post Doc at ICRM-CNR (2013-2015), investigating peptides as capturing ligands (bioprobes) for pathology-related biomarkers. Meanwhile (2010 and 2014), he was visiting scientist at the University of Queensland and at the University of Sydney, exploiting novel techniques for the chemical synthesis of therapeutic mini-proteins. Later (2015-206), he was Post Doc at Politecnico di Milano approaching the field of peptide nanoscience.
Since Dec 2016, he is Researcher at SCITEC-CNR where he started up his independent research lab devoted to peptide and macromolecular science for the development of new therapeutics, diagnostics and (bio)materials. Currently, he is also contract Professor in Chemistry at Università Vita Salute San Raffaele – Milano. He is currently author and co-author of >50 papers on international peer-reviewed journals, and recipient of competitive grants.
