Prof. Marco Giannetto was born in Messina, Italy in 1973. In 1996 He graduated in Chemistry (Master's Degree), magna cum laude, at University of Messina, with a final dissertation on the topic 'Sintesi di sistemi macropoliciclici contenenti unità naftaleniche e furaniche'.
In 2000 he achieved the PhD in "Scienze Chimiche" at University of Parma, with a final dissertation entitled "Realizzazione di Elettrodi Modificati e Ionoselettivi e loro applicazioni".
Since 2001 he has been a researcher at the Department of General and Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry and Physical Chemistry of the University of Parma.
From 2000 to the present he has carried out didactical activities for Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree courses in Chemistry and Environmental Sciences and Technologies, holding courses of "Analytical Chemistry and Laboratory", "Laboratory of Analytical Instrumental Chemistry", "Laboratory of Environmental Analysis","Laboratory of Sensors and Screening Methods".
Since 31/12/2017 he was appointed Associate Professor (art. 24, comma 6, Legge 30.12.2010, n. 240) at the Department of Chemical Sciences, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability of the University of Parma, scientific-disciplinary sector "CHIM/01- Analytical Chemistry".
He currently teaches "Analytical Chemistry and Laboratory" for the Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and "Screening Sensors and Techniques" for the Master's Degree in Chemistry, Biomolecular curriculum.
He has been the supervisor of more than 40 theses in Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and Technologies, Biotechnologies.
He has also carried out didactical activities in the context of the II level Master's Degree in "Forensic Sciences" and in "Quality System in the Analytical Chemical Laboratory".
From 2004 to 2012 he was a member of the Didactical Committee of the Unified Degree Course of the Chemistry class, as an exponent of the Analytical Chemistry teaching area.
Since 2012 he is a member of the Teaching Committee of the PhD course in "Chemical Sciences"
The scientific activity carried out by Prof. Marco Giannetto concerns the development and characterization of new chemical sensors with different transduction mechanisms (potentiometric, amperometric and piezoelectric sensors).
In particular, the research activity concerns the sensing applications of chemically modified electrodes as the main theme. Most of the published studies involved the modification of the electrode surface with ionic and molecular receptors.
In recent years, his research topic was focused on the development and validation of new biosensors based on antibody and enzyme receptors, whose application ranges from clinical interests (diagnostic devices in the biomedical field) to environmental, food and toxicological fields.
Other topics of interest are the development and validation of multivariate calibration models as well as experimental design procedures for optimization of sensor response.
The research activity is documented by more than 50 scientific publications in peer-reviewed international journals as well as more than 25 oral conference communications.
The activity has been also carried out in the context of co-funded ministerial research projects (COFIN 1998, project 9803360360_008 and COFIN 2004, project 2004031784_006, PRIN 2010-11 project 2010AXENJ8)
