Prof. Daniela Iannazzo
Daniela Iannazzo graduated in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Messina in 1995.
In 1999 she obtained the PhD qualification in Pharmaceutical Sciences and in 2001, the postgraduate qualification in Applied Microbiology at the University of Messina.
In 2001 she received a four years research contract at the University of Messina for the design, characterization and vehiculation of antivirals possessing a modified nucleosidic structure.
In 2003 she was Visiting Professor at the Departamento de Quimica Asimmetrica of the Faculty of Science at the University of Zaragoza and she was interested to the asymmetric synthesis of new modified nucleosides and to the application of quantomechanical calculations for the rationalization of pericyclic reactions.
In 2006 she became University Researcher in Organic Chemistry at the University of Messina.
In 2011 she performed research activity at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Trieste; the research activity regarded the organic functionalization of nanostructured materials for biomedical applications.
In 2018 she became Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry at the Department of Engineering of the University of Messina.
From 2019, she is member of the Doctoral Course in Bioengineering Applied to Medical Sciences of the University of Messina.
