Andrea Trabocchi graduated, in 1998, in chemistry from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, after spending his final year at the Imperial College, London, UK, working on chymotrypsin inhibitors with Professor Leatherbarrow. Subsequent to his return to Florence, in 2003, he obtained a Ph.D. degree in chemical sciences on the development of new bicyclic scaffolds as reverse turn inducers. Then, Trabocchi remained in the same institution for the postdoctoral work on combinatorial chemistry, and currently he works as an Assistant Professor. His research interests include diversity‐oriented synthesis, peptidomimetic chemistry, and conformational analysis of folded peptides and turn mimetics by NMR and molecular modeling. Trabocchi is also involved in medicinal chemistry issues concerning peptidomimetic inhibitors of integrins and of aspartic proteases, and he collaborates in an integrated biomedical center concerning molecular imaging. He published about 47 papers and 2 books in the field of organic and medicinal chemistry and filed 4 patents.
