Biography

Dr. Giacomo Russo achieved in 2012 a master’s degree in “Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology” summa cum laude from University of Naples Federico II. In 2013, he was kindly asked to join the Pharm-Analysis & Bio-Pharm Laboratory from the same University for a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences, which he completed (grade: Excellent) in 2016. During his Ph.D. studies, he worked for three months in 2015 as visiting Ph.D. candidate at the Drug Design Laboratories of the University of Milan “Statale” headed by Prof. Dr. Alessandro Pedretti and Prof. Dr. Giulio Vistoli, where he got hand-on experience and practical training in Computational Chemistry and Chemometrics. At the end of the same year, he was accepted as visiting Ph.D. candidate at the Separation Science Group (SSG), University of Ghent (UGent) (Belgium) for conducting biopartitioning studies for seven months in the state-of-the-art analytical laboratories led by Prof. Frederic Lynen. Dr. Giacomo Russo conducted post-doctoral research in nanoplasmonics and microcalorimetry at the Department of Chemistry, University of Helsinki (Finland) for 5 months in 2016 with the supervision of Prof. Dr. Susanne Kristina Wiedmer. He then was involved in other postdoctoral studies in formulation of a novel manganese superoxide dismutase with antitumoral activity in highly selective and biocompatible polymeric assemblies. This project was a joint activity involving the University of Palermo (supervisor: Prof. Massimo Midiri), the Italian Institute of Technology (supervisor: Ing. Raffaele Vecchione) and the University of Naples Federico II (supervisor: Prof. Lucia Grumetto). From August 2018, Dr. Russo joined again the SSG for innovative research concerning 3D printing and multidimensional gas and liquid chromatography for 1.5 years. After 3 and half year from the completion of his Ph.D., Dr. Giacomo Russo got a permanent lectureship in Pharmaceutical Sciences at Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh (UK). Dr. Russo currently co-authored 30 original papers, 1 review article, 9 posters and gave 9 oral communications at national and international conferences. He got 4 awards (of which 2 best poster awards). He is also active as reviewer (average 1 paper/month from Pharmaceutical Sciences and Analytical Chemistry journals) and expert for the National Science Poland (call PRELUDIUM). He was included in December 2019 in the list of Rising Stars of Separation Science by the journal LC GC Europe.
