Prof. Dr. Paolo Arosio
Prof. Dr. Paolo Arosio is an expert in protein aggregation and biophysical properties of biologicals. Since 2016, he is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor for Biochemical Engineering at the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He received his doctoral degree from ETH Zurich in 2011 and between 2012 and 2016, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, UK. His special interests are in the development of innovative technologies for the characterization and understanding of protein interactions, self-association, phase separation and aggregation. His studies have broad implications for both protein aggregation disorders as well as for the development and formulation of biologicals. He is the author of over 90 peer-reviewed articles on the topic and he is regularly invited to international conferences on protein engineering. He served as a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences. He has been named as “Influential Researcher 2018” by the Industrial Engineering Chemical Research ACS. In 2020, Prof. Arosio received the prestigious ERC Consolidator grant on protein phase separation.
