He is a working as a Research Scholar from University degli Studi di Palermo, Italy. He holds a Degree in Biological Sciences summa cum laude University of Palermo in the 1986. He is extending his valuable service as a Research Scholar comparative in immunobiology, molecular zoology and Isolation and characterization of bioactive peptides from marine invertebrate and has been a recipient of many award and grants. In 1997 Co-founder of Italian Society Developmental and Comparative Immunology. His research experience includes various programs, contributions and participation in different countries for diverse fields of study. His research interests as a Research Scholar reflect in his wide range of publications in various national and international journals.
Main Research Topics: Comparative immunobiology and molecular zoology, Isolation and characterization of bioactive peptides from marine invertebrate, Zoology, Evolutionary Biology and Entomology. In recent years, natural bio-resources are being viewed as a source of biologically active molecules. Currently, there is a very big competition between pharmaceutical companies to develop drugs derived from organisms in order to obtain new molecules more efficient in the treatment of resistant diseases and with lower costs of production. Our aim is create a strong multidisciplinary research environment for the discovery of bioactive molecules from plant and animals having applications in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, industrial products, biosensors, diagnostic substances and biotechnological tools. The research program followed by “biotechnology of natural bioactive substances” is based on zoology, botany, ecology, pharmacology and molecular and cellular biology strategies to discover, isolate, characterize and assess effects of new bioactive molecules.
