Pierluigi Caboni has got the B.S. degree (Bachelor’s degree) from 1991 to 1996 in chemistry, University of Cagliari, Italy. From 1996 to 1998, he worked as an Analytical Chemist working on environmental pollution and waste management(industrial laboratory). In addition, from 1998 to 2000, Caboni received the M.S. degree in Chemistry, University of Cagliari, Italy. From 2000 to 2002, he got the Ph.D. degree in pathology and environmental toxicology, University of Cagliari, Italy. The thesis title is “Naturally occurring pesticides.” The research project included the development of new analytical methods for the determination of pesticides (carried out at the University of Cagliari under the supervision of Professor P. Cabras) and the study of the toxicology aspects (carried out at the University of California at Berkeley under the supervision of Professor J. E. Casida). Furthermore, from 2002 to 2003, he held a Postdoc position at the University of California, Berkeley, in the Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology Laboratory under the supervision of Professor J. E. Casida. The research activity is focused on drug metabolism and molecular toxicology. From 2004 till present, he works as an Assistant Professor at the University of Cagliari, Italy, in the High Resolution Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Department of Toxicology. The research activity is focused on food analysis, microbiological antimicrobial analysis, pesticide, and drug metabolism. In 2010, he served as an Invited Lecturer at the American Chemical Society in Boston (August) with the title “Cytotoxic tirucallane triterpenoids from Melia azedarach fruits.” In 2011, he was an Invited Lecturer at the American Chemical Society in Denver, Colorado (August). His analytical skills are LC-MS-QTOF, LC/MS/MS, HPLC, GC/MS, and GC. Caboni is a Member of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and Italian Forensic Toxicologist.
