He received his bachelor's degree from Florida Atlantic University in 1974, and his doctorate from Indiana University in 1979.[1]

DiMarchi recently developed a synthetic analog of the human version of the hormone glucagon. DiMarchi's glucagon analog possesses similar biological properties to natural glucagon. It dissolves easily and maintains its structural integrity over extended periods at room temperature.[2]
