Impartido por la Dra. Carla Ferreri, investigadora sénior del Consejo Nacional de Investigación de Italia (ISOF-CNR) y Fundadora de Lipinutragen.
Dr Carla Ferreri intends to develop the field of Nutrilipidomics, proposing an original approach that combine the lipidome profiling with personalized nutraceuticals and functional foods, In different health conditions and pathologies the lipidome expresses specific characteristics, and research can provide reliable analytical protocols and relevant biomarkers. In this seminar she will give an overview of results in different pathologies and also will show her last work in obese individuals, underlining the importance of the comparison of the two well metabolically connected lipid classes, i.e. erythrocyte membranes phospholipids and plasma cholesteryl esters, which is needed to formulate and correctly interpret lipidomic profiles.
Dra. Carla Ferreri, graduated in Medicinal Chemistry in 1979 and post-graduated in Hospital Pharmacy in 1981, but her passion for organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry brought her to UC San Diego, California, for collaboration with Prof. E. Wenkert’s group. In 1984 she was appointed as permanent research fellow at the Organic Chemistry Department of the University of Napoli. From 2001 she moved to the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Bologna, where she is now Senior Researcher responsible of the project “Biomarkers of Free Radical Stress”.
Her research interests deals with the field of free radicals in life sciences. She is author of 150 publications and book chapters, 3 patents and 1 book. In the field of cell membrane lipidomics, Dr Ferreri is interested in the follow-up of fatty acid residues present in membrane phospholipids under physiological and pathological conditions, and her innovative project “Lipidomic profile of cell membranes: a molecular approach applied to human health” was recognized in 2010 with the ITWIIN award as the Best Innovator Woman in Italy and in 2011 received a certificate of merit at the EUWIIN conference in Helsinki.
Dr Ferreri co-founded with Dr. Chatgilialoglu the spin-off at the CNR, LIPINUTRAGEN, and she is also co-founder of the recently born, LipiNutraMed, start-up recognized by the National Center of Scientific Research “Demokritos”, in Greece.
