Antonino Natalello

Antonino Natalello was born in Agrigento, Italy, on May 24Th 1977. In 2002 he obtained a Laurea degree in Industrial Biotechnology at the University of Milano-Bicocca (qualification: magna cum laude). In 2006 he obtained a PhD in Industrial Biotechnology with a dissertation entitled “Protein stability and aggregation studied by biophysical methods” (Supervisor: Prof. S. M. Doglia). From Feb 2005 to Jun 2005, he was visiting the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Johannes Kepler University (Linz, Austria) performing research activity on mass spectrometry for protein studies (Supervisor: Prof. R. Grandori). In 2007 he obtained a one-year fellowship from the local government (Regione Lombardia) for research activity on "Protein aggregation in biomedicine and biotechnology". From 2008 to 2015 he worked as Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences (2008-2012) and at the Department of Physics (2013-2015) of the University of Milano-Bicocca. From September 2015 he is temporary assistant Professor of Applied Physics at the Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences of the University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy. A. Natalello obtained the National Scientific Qualification for Associate Professor of Applied Physics (from December 2013), of Biochemistry (from Jun 2014), and of Experimental Physics of Matter (from November 2014). His scientific interests are focused on protein folding, misfolding and aggregation in vitro and in vivo studied by biophysical approaches, among them: infrared spectroscopy and microspectroscopy of biomolecules, biomolecular optical spectroscopy (absorption, florescence, circular dichroism), and mass spectrometry. In particular, he has investigated several aspects of protein stability and aggregation also considering their biotechnological and biomedical implications, as the formation of inclusion bodies in bacterial cells, amyloid aggregation and the formation of peptide scaffolds. Major research topics: 1) protein stability; 2) amyloid aggregation; 3) structure-function relation; 4) aggregation of recombinant proteins; 5) protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. The research activity is documented by 59 publications on peer-reviewed international scientific journals, 7 chapters on international books, 5 oral communications and more than 50 poster communications at national and international meetings.
