Dr. Giuseppe Grasso graduated in Chemistry at University of Catania in 2000 and then studied in the UK at the University of Nottingham, where he obtained the PhD in Physical Chemistry in 2004. He is currently a Researcher at the University of Catania. He works in the field of metalloproteases and other proteins involved in neurodegenerative diseases by using different experimental techniques such as mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance. Particularly, he is interested in elucidating the role that metal ions have on regulating biomolecular mechanisms that are involved in neurodegenerative diseases. He has won a Fulbright Research Scholarship to spend 9 months (October 2015-June 2016) in Philadelphia (USA) to work in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease
