Massimo Morbidelli received his Laurea in Chemical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano in 1977, and his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame in 1986. After his first appointments as professor at the University of Cagliari (Italy) and then at the Politecnico di Milano, he is, since 1997, Professor of Chemical Reaction Engineering at the Institute for Chemical and Bioengineering at ETH Zurich (Switzerland).

His main research interests are in Chemical Reaction Engineering, with particular emphasis on polymer reactions and reaction-separation processes based on continuous chromatography. More recently, his interest in chromatographic separations is evolved in the area of biomolecules with specific focus on therapeutic proteins and monoclonal antibodies. The general aim of his research is the development of new concepts for the down stream processing of these materials.

Massimo Morbidelli is co-author of more than 300 papers, 11 international patents and four books. He serves as an associate editor of the journal of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, and is a member of the scientific board of several international scientific journals. He is the recipient of the 2005 R.H. Wilhelm Award in Chemical Reaction Engineering of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Since 2007, Massimo is President of ChromaCon Ltd., a spin-off company from his research group. ChromaCon Ltd. brings new chromatographic processes (MCSGP-technology) for the purification of proteins and peptides to the market
