Talk Title:Analytical Challenges in separation, enrichement and identification of peptides and amino acids: a piece in the puzzle of the bioactivity of protein derivative

Dr. Anna Laura Capriotti is currently Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of “La Sapienza” University of Rome. The 1th of October, she will become Associate professor at the same Department. She achieved her Ph.D. in 2012. During the Ph.D., she spent a period of 7 months in Berlin at “Max Delbrück Centrum for Molecular Medicine Berlin Buch member of Helmoltz Association”

She is the author of more than 90 papers, with current research interests in the development of new analytical methods based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry and tools for protein, peptide and small molecule characterisation. She has been able to apply these tools to issues of biological and biochemical relevance as well as in the fields of nutraceutical and food analysis. Dr Capriotti has also contributed fundamental research in the study of interaction between liposomes and biological fluids.

She has been awarded 7 prizes, such as “Young Research 2017” in Separation Science and “Young Research 2015” in Analytical Chemistry by the Italian Chemical Society, Ph.D. Thesis Award 2013 granted by Sapienza Università Editrice, SCI Award (2010) for the best Bachelor Thesis in Analytical Chemistry and other awards for best oral presentation and poster presentation at national conferences.
