Dr. Alessio graduated in Biology in 1984, and took the PhD in Human Biology in 1993. Meanwhile, he was AIRC fellow in the Cell Biology laboratory (University of Turin) and visiting scientist at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston (MS) and at the Cell Biology Laboratory, American Red Cross in Rockville (MD), where he developed expertise in tumor immunology, cell biology and protein biochemistry. Then, Dr. Alessio moved to IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele in Milan, as senior scientist in the Immunobiology Unit; in the 2000 became Project leader developing his expertise in differential proteomics for biomarkers identification and characterization, and for protein post-translation modifications analysis. In the 2007 he became Head of the Proteome biochemistry Unit and was mainly dedicated to neuro- and onco-proteomics studies. Since 2001 he is professor on contract in "Proteomics" at Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan.

He was Principal investigator in several national and international grants (AIRC- Italian Association for Cancer Research, Ministry of University Research; Ministry of Health; WHO-World Health Organization; CARIPLO Foundation; Michael J-Fox Foundation for Parkinson Research, Telethon Foundation).
