Mario Dell'Agli holds a Doctor degree in pharmaceutical chemistry and technology (1998), Diploma of specialty in experimental pharmacology (2000), and Ph.D. degree in pharmacotoxicological and pharmacognostical sciences, and pharmacological biotechnologies (2004), Department of Pharmacological Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Milan, Milan, Italy. Dell'Agli is Professor of plant biology at the Università degli Studi di Milano. He also worked as a Research Associate (from 2004 to 2009) in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Milan. Since 2010 he serves as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Milan. He is also a Member of the Italian Society of Pharmacognosy, the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA), and the scientific committee of Research Center for the Characterization and Safe Use of Natural Products, Giovanni Galli. He is a coauthor of 38 publications on international journals. His scientific activity is also documented by more than 90 presentations at national and international meetings. He is part of the board of reviewers for more than 15 international journals in the field of natural compounds. The research activity of Dell'Agli is devoted to the study of natural products derived from medicinal and edible plants. The approach combines pharmacological and phytochemical investigations, in order to connect a biological effect to a specific chemical entity. The lines of the research can be condensed as follows: anti-inflammatory, antiproteinase, and antiphosphodiesterase activities of plant polyphenols and other plant constituents; screening of plant extracts for the discovery of new antimalarials; lipolytic activity of plant products; and development of analytical methods for the determinations of markers in beverages.
