Michael Assfalg, M.A., graduated from the University of Florence, Italy, in 1997, and received the Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the same university in 2001. During his thesis works, he studied the structural and dynamic properties of metalloproteins using NMR spectroscopy. He served as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant till 2004 at the University of Maryland, Md, USA, where he applied the NMR technique to the study of polyubiquitin chains in solution. From 2004 to 2005, he worked as a Research Collaborator at the University spin-off Protera Srl, receiving a TOK Marie Curie Fellowship with secondment at the University of Frankfurt, Germany, where he performed applied research in the field of drug discovery and metabolomics. Since 2006, he has a permanent position of Assistant Professor of organic chemistry at the Faculty of Sciences, the University of Verona, Italy. His current research interests are in several fields of biomolecular NMR, including structural biology, metabolomics, and drug design.
