Prof. Raffaele Riccio graduated in Chemistry in 1972, from the University of Napoli (Italy) discussing a thesis on bio-organic and natural product chemistry with Prof. Luigi Minale.

He held postdoctoral positions at:

  • Institute for Molecules of Biological Interest (MIB CNR), in Arco Felice, Italy, with Prof. Luigi Minale (1973-1976);
  • University of Hawaii at Manoa, HI, USA, with Prof. Paul J. Scheuer (1976-1977);
  • Columbia University, NY, USA, with Prof. Koji Nakanishi (1981).

He was Researcher at the Institute MIB CNR, Arco Felice, Italy (1973-1987) and then Associated Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Napoli (1987-1994). In 1994 he was appointed Full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Salerno.
He has been visiting scientist at Cornell University, NY (1981); Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla CA (1990); University of Hawaii at Manoa, HI (1993); Bruxelles University; Uppsala University.
During his scientific career at the University of Salerno, since 1994, he has been: Coordinator of the PhD School of Pharmaceutical Sciences (1996-2002), Director of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences (1998-2000), Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy (2000-2004 and 2008-2013), elected member of Academic Senate (2005-2008), President of the Patent Committee (2004-2008).
He is currently President of the Italian Chemical Society for the term 2014-2016, after having been Vice-President (2011-2013) and President of the Division of Organic Chemistry (2008-2010)..
The research interests have been mainly devoted to:

the discovery and the chemical and pharmacological investigation of bioactive natural products as lead compounds in the area of antiviral, antitumoral, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulant activities;

    • the stereochemical analysis of flexible organic molecules by NMR and computational approaches;
    • the investigation of the molecular mechanism of action of bioactive natural products and of ligand-receptor interactions by NMR and MS techniques, combined with computational tools.
