John F Cipollo completed his PhD work at the State University of New York at Albany. He performed Post-doctoral studies at Boston University School of Medicine where he was the first to report the glycome of the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans, discovered phosphorylcholinyl oligosaccharides and demonstrated their synthesis in this organism. These compounds are host immune response modulators in parasitic nematodes. He was a Professor of Biochemistry at Boston University until recruited in 2007 to Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the US Food and Drug Administration where he has made meaningful contributions to the understanding of vaccine antigen glycosylation. He has published over 30 papers in reputed journals. He has also written guidance documents for the World Health Organization and United States Pharmacopeial Convention.
