Current Position: Roberta Marchetti, PhD, is Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry since 2020 at the University of Naples “Federico II”
Research activity and interest: Prof. Marchetti is specialized in organic chemistry, with a particular focus on the isolation, purification and characterisation of bacterial glycolipids. Her research interests are mainly focused on the comprehension of glycoconjugate–protein interactions through the application of NMR spectroscopy and computational methods. Promising results of her research activity were the subject of several publications in peer- reviewed journals and allowed her to be awarded of an ERC starting grant 2019 with the GLYCOSWITCH project.
Ongoing Research funding’s projects
European Research Council (ERC) under grant agreement No 851356 – GLYCOSWITCH project (years 2020-2025) aimed at disclosing the molecular basis of glycans recognition by host immune receptor proteins.
PRIN 2020XNFH9R – CANNOT-ESKAPE – aimed at acquiring new information on molecular mechanisms of resistance and adaptation of the three most scary multidrug resistant bacteria belonging to the ESKAPE family of pathogens (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa).
