Daniela Marasco graduated in chemistry in 1998, at the University of Naples Federico II in Bioinorganic Chemistry and in 2002 she attained Doctorate in Chemical Sciences. From 2002 to 2009 she worked at the Insitute of Biostructures and Bioimaging (IBB) of the Italian Research National Council as post-doc. From 2009 she is Reseacher of General Chemistry. She is teacher of “General Chemistry” and Techniques of Structural Biology” at University of Naples "Federico II".
The research activities of Daniela Marasco are focused on the relationships between structure and activities of biological macromolecules. Primarily the chemical synthesis of proteins, peptides and peptidomimetics, single and as libraries. The identifications of peptide-based molecules as modulators of protein-protein interactions. These research topics are carried out by combining chemical synthetic routes, mass-spectrometry, spectroscopic techniques (circular dicroism, Fluorescence) and biochemical binding assays as ELISA, SPR, ITC, FRET.
Dr. Marasco is co-author of about 107 publications on international journals (among which Nature Communication, Oncotarget, JACS, PNAS, NAR, Stem Cells), book chapters, and four patents.
