Marco Malavolta


Marco Malavolta

Dr. Marco Malavolta started his career as a chemist with a PhD in Nutrition and Health at the University of Ancona, but then focused his research activity specifically in biogerontology research. He has been working in this field for the last 10 years with a particular focus on the role of trace elements and other micronutrients in aging. Currently, Dr. Malavolta is involved in the identification of nutritional factors that are able to modulate cellular senescence or that can be used to selectively remove accumulating senescent cells in aged organisms. He is convinced of the existence of a causal relationship between aging and age-related diseases, and that the key to develop effective interventions for these diseases lies in the deep understanding of the biological aging process. Dr. Malavolta is author or co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in the field of nutrition and biogerontology. Additionally, he is also a member of the editorial boards of several journals dedicated to these thematic areas. Most of his research activity has been carried out and is currently conducted in the Centre of Nutrition and Ageing at INRCA, The Italian National Institute of Health and Science on Aging.
