About Me
Senior Resercher ISTITUTO DI RICERCHE CHIMICHE E BIOCHIMICHE "G. RONZONI" Date from 2016 ? Dr Giangiacomo Torri studied bioorganic chemistry at University of Pavia. He joined the research group of Prof. B. Casu at the ?G. Ronzoni? Institute in 1973. He was Harold Hibbert Fellow (1979-1980) at the "Department of Chemistry", of McGill University of Montreal (Canada), guest of prof. A.S. Perlin as visiting scientist. From 2000 up to 2015 he was the Director of the Ronzoni Research Institute. He is expert in the chemistry and biochemistry of bioactive carbohydrate polymers. He is especially involved in studies dealing with structural elucidation and modulation of sequences of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), aimed at establishing structure-activity relationships. He contributed to the development of advanced approaches (especially by NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry) to the characterization of the structure, binding properties and complex formations of GAGs. He also contributed to the determination of the three-dimensional structure of GAG sequences both in the absence and in the presence of binding proteins. He has wide experience in the coordination of interdisciplinary national and international research projects. He has over two hundred and fifty of scientific publications and patents. Since 2003 he has been President of the ?Consortium for NMR research in biotechnology and material science?. Since 2007 he has been experts for the working party on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometry of EU Pharmacopoeia Commission (EDQM).
