Trained as a pharmaceutical chemist and formulator, Marianna Galliani is particularly experienced in organic and medicinal chemistry, formulation of drug delivery systems as well as cosmetic products and food chemistry. She transfers her technical versatility into the intellectual property practice by advising clients around the world in fields ranging from pure organic chemistry to pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.
Having grown up in Italy, but being specialized in examination and opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO) and the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO), Marianna especially enjoys interacting directly with Italian clients and helping them navigating European and German practice.
Before joining HOFFMANN EITLE, Marianna graduated in pharmaceutical chemistry and technology at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, where she also obtained the license to practice as a pharmacist in Italy. She completed her PhD at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa in the field of pharmaceutical technology, in particular in the formulation development of nanoparticles for the brain-targeted delivery of therapeutic proteins and the preclinical study of their efficacy as potential therapy for metabolic disorders. Her research resulted in numerous scientific publications in the field of pharmaceutical technology.
In her free time, Marianna enjoys graphic design and illustration, as well as playing the piano.
