Dr. Jesmond Dalli The William Harvey Research Institute
Jesmond Dalli is a Professor in Molecular Pharmacology at the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and Queen Mary College. He is also the director of the Lipid Mediator Unit at the William Harvey Research Institute. He received a B.Sc (Hons) in chemistry and biology and an M.Sc in biology from the University of Malta. He then read for and completed a Ph.D at the William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London with Prof. Mauro Perretti. Prof. Dalli subsequently moved to Prof. Charles N. Serhan’s laboratory at Harvard Medical school and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital where he held a faculty post and was the co-director of two NIH funded lipid mediator profiling cores. His research efforts are focused on the structural elucidation of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid-derived bioactive lipid mediators, assessing their cellular targets and the molecular mechanisms through which these mediators exert their actions in the resolution of inflammation. He has co-authored over 150 publications in peer-reviewed journals and holds several patents. He is the co-founder of a Spinoff company that is developing resolution-based diagnostics. Has also received several prizes including the, Eicosanoid Research Foundation Young Investigator award, the William J. Gies Award from the IADR/AADR and William Harvey Young Investigator Award.
