C. Alessandri (Biography
C. Alessandri

She graduated in Medicine in 1977 at the Rome University "Sapienza" and specialized in Pediatrics in 1980 and in Childcare in 1985. For over 25 years, she was interested in pediatric allergy and for more than 10 years she has begun her personal journey in Molecular Allergology. Extremely interested in the matter, since the beginning of 2008 she has transferred her business from one of the largest departments of pediatrics in Rome to the Molecular Allergology Center, by integrating her healthcare activity with that of research in the pediatric age, effectively complementing the activities already taking place in the center and dedicated to teenagers, adults and seniors. She has performed some fundamental studies on markers of severity of food allergy in children, mainly in cow's milk, egg, and plant food allergy. In collaboration with the other CAAM (Centri Associati Allergologia Molecolare) members and researchers from other research centers, she has identified and characterized new allergenic molecules and, thanks to microarray-based diagnostics, she has set new molecular profiles of awareness leading to innovative schemes for therapeutic intervention in the allergic child. Dr.ssa Alessandri has published more than 80 scientific publications. She is co-founder of CAAM, sharing the spirit and philosophy, contributing to its organization and its development. Together with the other CAAM specialists she contributes to the design and release of the second generation molecule-based test for allergy diagnosis, the FABER IgE test. claudia.alessandri@caam-allergy.com

O. Gualillo (Biography
O. Gualillo

Dr. Oreste Gualillo graduated in pharmaceutical chemistry and technology at the School of Pharmacy of the University “Federico II” in Naples, Italy. He obtained his Ph.D in Pharmacology in 1995. He received training in molecular endocrinology under the mentoring of Professor Paul A. Kelly at the Necker School of Medicine, INSERM U344, in Paris. In 1998, he moved to the Laboratory of Molecular Endocrinology of the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, where he was a "Marie Curie" TMR30 Postdoctoral Research Fellow. In 2001, he set up his own research group at the Santiago University Clinical Hospital, Division of Rheumatology. He is currently a Staff Researcher of the Spanish National Heath System ["Carlos III” National Institute of Health and SERGAS (Servizo Galego de Saude)], at Santiago University Clinical Hospital, heading the Neuroendocrine Interactions in Rheumatology and Inflammatory Diseases (NEIRID) group of IDIS (Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria de Santiago). He worked on the regulation and signal transduction of prolactin, leptin and ghrelin under various pathophysiological conditions, in particular in immunity and inflammation. Since 2001, Dr. Gualillo’s primary research focussed on the molecular signals triggered by adipokines and on the pathways through which adipokines are involved in rheumatic diseases and in the inflammatory response of chondrocytes, synovial cells and adipocytes in particular in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Over the past years, his group has contributed to multiple aspects of research on the roles of adipokines in inflammation in rheumatic disorders and to define the molecular basis of ghrelin action in chondrocytes and other systems. Dr. Gualillo’s group is also involved in research aimed to define the role of phenolic compounds of extra virgin olive oil in cartilage pathophysiology. Dr. Gualillo’s track record of professional achievement is backed up by more than 150 primary peer-reviewed publications (research papers, book chapters, editorials etc). He has on going collaborative research with industry and leading academic investigators in established centres of excellence in Europe and USA. He serves on the editorial boards of several scientific journals and committes as well as technical advisory bodies.
