He also serves as a consulting faculty for the Center for Resources in Integrative Biology (CRIB) within Johns Hopkins University, with reference to the preparation of cardiac samples for mass spectrometry analysis.
Dr. Agnetti received his undergraduate degree in pharmaceutical chemistry from the University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy – where he also earned his PhD in biochemistry and pathophysiology of aging in 2005. He first joined Johns Hopkins University as a visiting scientist the same year. The following year he enrolled to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in cardiovascular proteomics and joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2012.
He is an active member of the American Heart Association, for which, among other efforts, he organized two symposia for the Scientific Sessions 2014 and 2016.
