Fabrizio Alberti

Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow (Senior Research Fellow)

fabrizios_photo.jpgFabrizio holds a joint appointment between the Department of Chemistry and the School of Life Sciences, and he is the recipient of a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship. Before starting his independent research, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Corre Lab (2015-2018), working to discover new natural products from actinomycetes.

He completed his Ph.D. studies at the University of Bristol in the Foster/Bailey Lab (2012-2015), focusing on the biosynthesis of terpenoid antibiotics. He graduated from the University of Perugia (Italy) with a BSc and MSc in Biotechnology.

Groups at Warwick



  • 2018 - present, Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow, University of Warwick
  • 2015 - 2018, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Warwick
  • 2012 - 2015, PhD in Microbiology/Chemical Biology, University of Bristol
  • 2009 - 2012, MSc in Environmental Biotechnology, University of Perugia (Italy)
  • 2006 - 2009, BSc in Biotechnology, University of Perugia (Italy)

I am working on the following projects at the moment:

  • refactoring the biosynthesis of terpenoid natural products from fungi,
  • discovering bioactive natural products from actinomycete bacteria.

I am currently interested in the characterisation of bioactive natural products made by microorganism.

The main aims of my research are:

  • to refactor the biosynthesis of terpenoid natural products from fungi,
  • to discover bioactive natural products from actinomycete bacteria.

I am supervising the following PhD students:

  • Mr Jack Weaver, biosynthesis of terpenoid natural products in fungi (jointly supervised with Dr Chris Corre).
  • Ms Duha Alkhder, mode of action of stilbene antibiotics (jointly supervised with Dr Nick Waterfield, WMS).
  • Ms Marlene Rothe (jointly supervised with Prof Greg Challis).
