After receiving his PhD in 2002, Antonio stayed on as a post-doctoral researcher in the group, working on new fluorescence-based PCR assays. In 2004 he joined Professor Maurizio Taddei’s group at the University of Siena, focusing his interest in the fields of polymer-supported reagents and synthesis of novel Hedgehog Signalling Pathway inhibitors.
