|Giuseppe Squadrito, Ph.D.
Research Associate Professor
Areas of Focus: Development, design and evaluation of dynamic multi-component molecular systems
Development, design and evaluation of dynamic multi-component molecular systems that can be used to understand the effects of oxidants in biological systems of various degrees of complexity. Such systems include reactions of smog, combustion-associated, and naturally produced oxidants and free radicals with biological target molecules, the covalent modifications that they induce and the cellular responses that ensue, and the protection by natural and synthetic antioxidants, antioxidant enzymes, and free radical scavengers.
Dr. Giuseppe Squadrito received BS degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru in 1983 in the field of Chemistry. He went on to receive his Ph.D. degree from Louisiana State University in 1988 in Organic Chemistry. Dr. Squadrito received his postdoctoral training the Biodynamics Institute, at Louisiana State University. He joined the UAB faculty in 2003.
