Full Professor of Medicinal chemistry and Pharmaceutical Analysis at Pavia University, Italy, where she leads the Pharmaceutical Analysis Lab. Visiting scientist at Bradford University (UK) and associated professor at McGill University in Montreal (Canada) working with Prof. Irving Wainer. She is member of the PhD Teaching Council in Chemistry and pharmaceutical sciences‚ and for 10 years she was director of the PhD School. She served as Director of the Department of Drug Sciences of Pavia University (2011-2018). At present she is member of the board of the Cluster in Life Sciences in Lombardia Region and of the board of Pavia University. Editor of Chromatographia since 2006 and Review Editor on the Editorial Board of Frontiers in Chemistry (specialty section of Analytical Chemistry).
Professor Massolini has been active in all fields of separation sciences particularly in liquid chromatography and chromatographic-like techniques. Her main scientific interests involve the development of stationary phases based on immobilized proteins/enzymes. In particular, she carried out innovative researches on the exploitation of immobilized enzymes as bioreactors in liquid chromatography (flow-chemistry systems) and on the comprehension of interaction mechanisms for protein-based stationary phases. She has authored 125 peer-reviewed scientific publications and presented many invited lectures at scientific meetings.
