Marco Barone graduated in Chemistry in 2019 at the University of Catania with full marks defending a thesis in Bioinorganic Chemistry entitled "Cyclodextrin-based polymers for Drug Delivery" (Supervisor: Prof. Graziella Vecchio). Later in 2021 he obtained Master's Degree in Chemistry at the University of Padua with full marks and honors, discussing a thesis entitled "The role of NMR in a Fragment-Based approach for the development of new potential inhibitors against MPro from SARS-CoV-2" (Supervisor: Prof. Massimo Bellanda). During the internship in "Biomolecular Structures" laboratory, which lasted 9 months, he focused on protein expression, purification (FPLC) and validation (ESI-MS, CD, DLS), as well as NMR experiments in Drug Discovery processes (Ligand Based and Protein Based). Finally he characterized the P-L complexes found by NMR titrations and calorimetric measurements (ITC). From October 2021 he is PhD student in Biomolecular Sciences, which he is carrying out at the Bio-crystallography laboratory studying "The Epigenetic processes and their deregulation in cellular transformation" (Supervisor: Andrea Mattevi).
