Francesco Maione


Francesco Maione graduated in Pharmacy in 2005 from the University of Naples “Federico II” and trained in Pharmacology at the Department of Experimental Pharmacology of the Faculty of Pharmacy.

During his PhD in Pharmacology (2005 to 2008) he studied the role of N-formyl-peptides (fMLF and FTM) in different models of pain and inflammation. In these studies Dr. Francesco Maione demonstrated that these endogenous (fMLF) and synthetic peptides (FTM) have a remarkable in vivo inflammatory and painful activity. Dr Maione directed his efforts on this research path even further after beginning his post-doctoral training in the laboratory of Prof. Mauro Perretti, at William Harvey Research Institute - Queen Mary University of London (2008-2010). During this time he expanded, also, his knowledge on inflammation by focusing on immune-mediated inflammatory diseases and investigated the role of Annexin-1 (ANX-1) and interleukin-17A (IL-17A) in different model of inflammation.

Since 2010, he joined Prof. Nicola Mascolo’s lab where he re-activated his long-term interest in natural compound biology, starting an unexplored path in the role of natural molecules in the inflammatory response and cardiovascular system. In 2013 Dr Francesco Maione obtained the Specialization in Clinical Pharmacy at University of Naples Federico II.

Research Interests:

  • Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) biology
  • Immunological control of inflammation
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Pharmacology of natural products
