About Me

Luigi A. Agrofoglio, born in Antibes, France (1965), received his B.S. (1987) and Ph.D. (1993) degrees in chemistry from the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis (France), working with Professor R. Condom on the synthesis of carbocyclic analogues of nucleosides. Dr. Agrofoglio held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, working with Professor J.-P. Sommadossi, as well as at the University of Georgia at Athens, working in the laboratory of Professor C. K. Chu. He joined the Institute of Organic and Analytical Chemistry, a CNRS research laboratory associated with the University of Orleans (France) as Assistant Professor in 1995. Nominated Full Professor in 2005, he is nowadays the group leader of the research team Synthesis and Bioanalysis: Antiviral and Antitumoral Bioorganic Chemistry. His main areas of expertise and interest deal with organic and medicinal chemistry of mainly nucleosides but also heterocycles, as well as bioanalysis and molecularly imprinted polymers. He has coauthored about 100 publications in these fields and several patents.  He serves as reviewers of several journal of organic and medicinal chemistry as well as of national and international grant proposal. He is member of the Scientifc Council of the University of Orleans and Director of the PhD School of "Health - Biological Sciences - Chemistry for Life" at the same University.
