    Eugenio Garribba

    Eugenio Garribba was born in Sassari (Italy) on March 21, 1970. He took the degree in Chemistry cum laude at the University of Sassari in 1995 and Ph.D. degree with a dissertation with the title “Complexes of vanadium of biological interest” under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni Micera.
    From 2004 he was Researcher and from 2016 Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy of the University of Sassari.
    He held more than thirty university courses and was supervisor for twenty-nine Bachelor's and Master's degree theses in Chemistry, Chemical Sciences, Biotechnology and Experimental and Applied Biology and for two PhD students in the school of Chemical Science and Technology.
    He was President of the Teaching Commission for the Degree in Chemistry and Chemical Sciences (2012-2014), Rectoral Delegate for Orientation and Job Placement (2014-2017) and President of the Research Committee of Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy (2018-2021).
    He participated to several national, regional and local projects and COST Chemistry Actions.
    He published 201 papers with reviewing (83 as the corresponding author) in the field of the metal coordination, bioinorganic and computational chemistry and more than one hundred oral or poster communications in national and international chemistry conferences. These studies were carried out in cooperation with more than 70 universities/institutions worldwide. Six of his papers were chosen as front cover pictures for journals of American Chemical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry and Wiley. He is 250th in Top Italian Scientist ranking of the chemistry macroarea.
    His research interests concern the inorganic chemistry (in particular, vanadium and copper), the synthesis and characterization of metal complexes with potential pharmacological activity, their transformation and interaction with the bioligands of the organism, and the application of computational techniques in the investigation of molecular, electronic and spectroscopic properties of coordination compounds and their binding to proteins. 
    He is Referee for the most important multidisciplinary, inorganic chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry journals.
    H-index: 45; total citations: more than 5400 (Scopus).
