Curriculum

Formation

Obtains the degree Laurea in Scienze biologiche in July 1968.

During the subsequent years of scientific formation he obtained the following fellowships:

1969-70, partecipate in the advanced training course "Ciclo biennale di ricerche in Genetica e Biochimica applicate alla Microbiologia industriale". During this period, he works on the genetic origin of polypetide elogation factors of yeast mitochondria.

1972-74, gets a two-year fellowship from Dalhousie University, Halifax (Canada). During this period  he  works on the genetics and biochemistry of microrganisms (Streptomyces sp.) that produce antibiotics that inhibit protein synthesis.

1974-75, he obtains a Leverhulme European Visiting Fellowship at the Botanical Laboratories, University of Leicester (UK) working on the polysome metabolism of cultured plant cells..

Since 1975 he has contributed to the diffusion in Italy of plant cell culture techniques organizing national and international Workshops.

1978, he obtains an EMBO fellowship to work at the Weizmann Institute (Israel) on plant somatic cell genetics.

 

In 1990 he received the "A. Beccarini Melandri"  award of the SocietÓ Italiana di Fisiologia Vegetale.

 

Academic career

1975 Research fellow at the Istituto di Genetica Biochimica ed Evoluzionistica del CNR (Pavia, Italy).

1983 Associate professor of Plant physiology at the University. of Pavia.

1994 Professor of Plant physiology at the University of Ferrara.

1997-on. Professor of Plant physiology at the University of Pavia.

1998-2003 he was elected Head of the Department of “Genetica e Microbiologia” of the University of Pavia.

2007 Head of the Centre for Innovation and Technology transfer of the University of Pavia.

 

Scientific update

He joined, as a Visiting Scientist, the following scientific Institutions:

- Department of Plant Sciences, University of Western Ontario (London, Canada), (from July to  December 1983), working on bio-molecular and cytological aspects of peroxidase production by plant cell grown in suspension cultures,

- Department of Biochemistry, University of Ottawa (Canada) (from July to October 1987) to work on the cloning of carrot diidrofolate reductase.

- Department of Brassica and Oilseeds, Cambridge Laboratory, John Innes Centre, Norwich U.K., (form June to September 1991), to work on the identification of transcription factor involved in the expression of a oleosin gene from Brassica napus.

 

Current research interests

Functional characterization of cell-cycle regulators. The E2F family of Arabidopsis comprises eight members: two DPs and six E2Fs (two activators, one repressor and three atypical which lack a transactivation domain and have two DNA-binding domains). Results from current studies suggest a dynamic scenario characterized by an interplay between AtE2Fs in regulating cell-cycle and development in Arabidopsis .

Translesion DNA synthesis. The aim of the project is to characterize Arabidopsis plant translesion DNA polymerases and produced plant cell lines characterized by an altered expression of the relevant genes in order to evaluate their response to oxidative stress.

Biofuels. Methods are developed for the production of recombinant cell-wall degrading enzymes.
