Carlo Siciliano works at the “Laboratory of Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry”, Department of Pharmacy, Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Calabria. He is author of 50 Publications in International Journals, 1 patent, and 75 contributions to National and International Congresses.  In 2008 Carlo Siciliano has been the National Coordinator of the PRIN 2008 Research Project titled “New ion-responsive biosensors: from the design and synthesis of tetrazole building blocks to their implantation on polymeric scaffolds” (Italian Minster of University Research, MIUR), receiving a positive evaluation and a financial support from the University of Calabria for the reported classification results. 

Main scientific and research interests developed in the organic synthesis field:
(a) synthetic methods for the preparation of analogues of biomolecules
(b) synthesis of modified nucleosides and nucleotides having heterocyclic structure
(c) amino acid and peptide chemistry
(d) structural modification of natural amino acids and synthesis of their non-natural analogues
(e) design, synthesis and characterization of protease inhibitors
(f) steroid chemistry
He also has interests in the instrumental analysis of natural, human and food matrices.
Recently, he opened a new field of research consisting in the application of high resolution NMR techniques to the analysis of major components in food and meat matrices.
