Dr. Scipioni obtained the master degree in Chemistry summa cum laude at the University of Rome La Sapienza in1983.
In the period October 1983-March 1984 received a grant from ENEA for research about the treatment of nuclear fuel.
In the period April-October 1984 received a fellowship from Istituto Superiore di Sanità for research concerning the monitoring of heavy metals in biological fluids using Atomic Absorption.
She received the PhD in Chemical Sciences in 1988.
From 1988 up to 1995, she taught Chemistry in different Italian high schools.
Since 1995 up to 2016 she has been researcher in the field of physical chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of the University La Sapienza of Rome.
From 2016, she is associate professor of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of the University La Sapienza of Rome.
From 2000 up to the current year, she has taken different courses in the field of Physical Chemistry, Experimental Physical Chemistry and Biophysical Chemistry.
She is reviewer of Biophysical Journal, Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics, BMC Genomics, IOP Sciences (Nanotechnology, Physical Biology, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter), Interface Focus (Royal Society Publishing), Langmuir, Organic Letters, Chemical Physics Letters, Electrophoresis, DNA Research, Supramolecular Chemistry e Biophysical Chemistry, ACS Applied Materials Interfaces and Advanced Materials Interfaces, Molecules, Int. J. Molecular Science, Advanced Biosystems, Biomolecules, Nanomaterials
She is an external reviewer of European Research Council for ERC junior and The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
At present, her main research interests were devoted to investigate physical-chemical properties of self-assembling based-peptide hybrids, such as peptide-polymer conjugates, lipopeptides and bile salt-peptide derivatives for applications in nano-medicine.
