Graduated in Biological Sciences at the University of Padua in March 7th 1985, discussing an experimental thesis concerning: “Synthesis of peptides containing acidic cluster as substrates and inhibitor of a c-AMP independent liver protein kinase”, reaching 110/110 cum laude.
In the Academic years 1988-93 he made his PhD-Course in "Biology Molecular And Cellular Pathology" at the University of Padua working to a thesis with the title: “Synthesis and Characterization of peptides to study protein kinase”
In the year 1992, prof. Marin has been named (nomination D.M. 27.06.1992) in the role of the University Researchers, for the grouping discipline BIO/10 (Biochemistry) at the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery with following confirmation through D.R. n° 13236/D of 22.07/1996.
Since 2006 he is Associate Professor of Biochemistry at the School of Medicine and Surgery, University of Padua.
Specific competences in the field of the protein and peptide chemistry, purification of proteins and antibodies production. Prof. Marin has devoted to the planning of peptide libraries in the laboratory of Prof. Ronald Frank to the Centre of Biotechnologies GBF (Germany) for studying substrate specificity in protein phosphorylation.
Prof. Marin develops his institutional assignments of research at the CRIBI Biothechnology Centre (University of Padua) where coordinates the activity of a research group constituted firmly by a graduated technician and a PhD student.
Further, Prof. Marin manages the Peptide Facility at CRIBI (http://peptidefacility.bio.unipd.it/) with a mission to supply synthetic peptide for medical and biological research. At the same time, Prof. Marin has actively participated at proteomic project of University of Padua and currently coordinates the research and proteomic server activities of the core facility for proteomic at Azienda Ospedaliera di Padova.
