Maria Chiara Mimmi0000-0002-5165-9230
Maria Chiara Mimmi completed her Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 2003 at the University of Milan, Milan, Italy. She is an expert in LC-MS (liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry) applied to metabolic markers assessment in biological samples and to proteins sequencing/analysis. She is a proficient user of solution NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) applied to metabolic profiling of biological samples as well as proteins characterization. Mimmi dedicated her postdoctoral research to structural and dynamic characterization of amyloidogenic proteins by biophysical and biochemical methods. Since 2010, her interest has shifted towards metabolomics and system biology. Using mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy, she has been focusing on the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools concerning different pathologies, such as amyloid disease, congenital malformations, and breast cancer. Recently, Mimmi has been responsible for a project about ß2-microglobulin self-aggregation and amyloidogenesis, funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. Presently, she is a Research Fellow at the University of Udine, Udine, Italy, and is responsible for a project about normothermic versus cold ischemic storage in heart transplantation, funded by the Italian Ministry of Health.
