Curriculum

Ambiti di ricerca
Durante questi anni ha concentrato i suoi studi sull'analisi strutturale e funzionale di proteine di diversi organismi coinvolte in processi patologici o che possono avere un'attività biologica nel trattamento ad esempio di malattie tumorali, il cui lavoro è risultato nella pubblicazione di articoli scientifici su riviste ad alto impatto.
Attualmente si occupa anche della sintesi e della caratterizzazione chimico-fisica di nanocomposti per applicazioni farmaceutiche, cosmetiche e per la produzione di idrogeno.

Research interests
During the years after the PhD, Massimiliano Perduca further studied the structural and functional analysis of proteins from different organisms involved in illness or that can be used as drugs for treating tumoral diseases, resulting to the publication of several papers.
Currently he is also involved in projects based on synthesis and phisico-chemical characterization of nanostructures for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and hydrogen production use.
