Prof. Roberto Romeo
Roberto Romeo is Professor of Organic Chemistry since 2004, his main research activity deals with the organic synthesis methodologies, addressed to the design and development of new synthetic processes for the formation of new carbon carbon bonds and hetero- and carbocyclic systems, based on radical and peryciclic processes. Recently, particular attention was devoted towards the design, the synthesis and the vehiculation of modified nucleosides with potential antiviral and/or antitumoral activity. He is also carrying out research on the isolation from plant sources and characterization of natural compounds with bioactive potential.
Moreover his research activity regarded the organic functionalization of nanostructured materials for biomedical applications.
Member of the “Interuniversity Research Center about Pericyclic Reaction and Synthesis of Hetero- and Carbocyclic Systems” and of the “National University Consortium for Innovative Methodologies and Synthetic Processes”.
Scientific advisor of Fort Dodge Animal Health (Wyeth Lederle S.p.A Division) for “Studi innovativi di sintesi e di delivery systems di nuove molecole ad interesse farmaceutico per la salute degli animali”.
Prof. Roberto Romeo enjoys a number of national and international scientific collaborations. He has been the Scientific Director of International and National Research Projects. He has been an invited speaker in Ph.D. Schools and in many National and International Conferences. He has coauthored over 100 publications, presented over 50 lectures, and supervised many students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scholars with research interests in developing stereoselective methods and applications in natural product syntheses.
