Carlo Santini is Associate Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Camerino and in 2013 he received the qualification of Full Professor in Fundamentals of Chemical Sciences and Inorganic Systems. He coordinated the Doctoral Area in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Biotechnologies of the School of Advanced Studies and since 2015 he has been the head of the Chemistry Division of the School of Science and Technology of the University of Camerino. His research interests are in coordination and organometallic chemistry, in functional metal
complexes and metal-based drugs.
Dr. Fatih Sen obtained his Ph.D. degree (2011) in Inorganic Chemistry from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. Dr. Sen is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry (Faculty of Science and Art) at Kütahya Dumlupinar University, Kütahya, Turkey. He spent almost two years at Massachusetts Institute and Technology (MIT), USA, as a Post-doc in the research group of Prof. M.S. Strano (involving different nanomaterials and their applications, such as biosensors, biofuel cells, thermopower energy generation, carbon nanotubes, graphene, etc). Dr. Sen, as an author/co-author, has published more than 100 articles in various journals (having over 3,000 total citations).
Dr. Sotelo-Mundo works on the structure and function of proteins related to disease, and chemical structure of natural and synthetic molecules related to biomedical applications. The experimental approach is crystallography, along with biochemical and biophysical techniques. Our group collaborates with a range of groups from disciplines from genomics and metagenomics, biochemistry, supramolecular chemistry and material sciences.
Obtained Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and then spent time at Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, Cambridge and Royal Institution of Great Britain, London and University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
Interests include molecular simulation, computational methods, physical chemistry, intermolecular interaction, phase transitions and diffusion. Visiting Professor at several institutions in Europe and Japan such as University of Sassari in Sardinia, Italy as well as IMR, Sendai University.
Claudiu T. Supuran is professor of medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry at the University of Florence, Italy, since 1995. He did his Ph D at University of Bucharest, Romania, and was a visiting scholar at University of Florida, Gainesville, USA, and at Grifitth University, Brisbane, Australia. He was visiting professor at University of La Plata, Argentina and at University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. His main research interest is the medicinal chemistry/biochemistry of carbonic anhydrases, field in which he has made contributions to the design of many novel classes of enzyme inhibitors and activators, deciphering their mechanism of action at molecular level, discovery of new isoforms and their role in disease (cancer, obesity, epilepsy, neuropathic pain and cognition), discovery and characterization of carbonic anhydrases from various organisms (bacteria, fungi, corals, vertebrates other than humans and rodents, etc). Other research interests include X-ray crystallography of metallo-enzymes, heterocyclic chemistry, chemistry of sulfonamides, metal-based drugs, cyclooxygenases, serine proteases, matrix metalloproteinases, bacterial proteases, and amino acid derivatives among others. He has published more than 1500 papers in these fields and his Hirsch index is 134. One of the compounds discovered in his laboratory (SLC-0111) is in Phase II clinical trials for the treatment of advanced metastatic solid tumors
Since October 2014 AT is Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department of University of Pavia, sector CHIM/03.
He has been tutor of about 25 thesis degree and of two PhD students. He is a referee for several international journals. In December 2013 he obtained the scientific abilitation as “Professore Ordinario” .
Here are briefly listed some of his research interests.
(i) design, synthesis and characterization of systems able to work as fluorescent sensors for analytes of biological interest;
(ii) kinetic characterization of demetallation or translocation processes involving polyamminic complexes of transition metal ions;
(iii) design, synthesis and characterization of systems able to perform controlled translocation of transition metal cations inside poli-aza ligands;
(iv) design, synthesis and characterization of devices containing transition metal ions able to perform supramolecular functions;
(v) functionalization of surfaces and polymeric samples with inorganic (Au, Ag, CuS) nano-objects and/or transition metal complexes with microbicidal action, in order to build antibacterial materials;
(vi) synthesis of anisotropic noble metal (Ag, Au) nano-objects, their surface functionalization for sensing and theranostic applications, study of their SERS (Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy) activity;
(vii) green synthesis of noble metal nanoparticles exploiting agricultural waste materials.
Associate professor in Division of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyushu University.
My study focuses on the functionalizing metal-organic frameworks, or coordination polymers, and studying their electrochemical properties
such as proton or ionic conductivity and redox capability.
Professor in Inorganic Chemistry and Principal Investigator of Nanomaterials and Catalysis Research Group
