Fulvio D'Acquisto graduated in pharmaceutical chemistry in 1993 from the University of Naples Federico II and was trained in pharmacology at the Department of Experimental Pharmacology of the Faculty of Pharmacy. In 1996, he obtained the M.A. degree in experimental pharmacology working on mechanisms by which Annexin-A1 controls gene expression in inflammation. He earned his Ph.D. degree in experimental pharmacology (1999). Since 2003, he joined Professors Perretti and Flower’s Laboratory at WHRI, where he reactivated his long-term interest in Annexin-A1 biology, starting a unexplored path in the role of this protein in the adaptive immune response. In 2004, he was awarded the New Investigator Award of the Medical Research Council. In 2006, he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in Immunopharmacology within the Center for Biochemical Pharmacology at WHRI. In 2009, he was conferred the title of Reader in Immunopharmacology.
