I am highly experienced biologist working in the field of transmission electron microscopy investigation of biological samples in the last fifteen years; during the last ten years I have upgraded my knowledge and expertise with the preparation and analysis of non-biological samples such as polymeric and inorganic nanostructured materials. Furthermore, through my experience in electron microscopy, working mainly in the field of neurodegenerative disorders, I have gained in-depth competence and wide-spread experience in ultrastructural analysis of biomedical samples with a marked interest towards the analysis of a wide range of models of neurodegenerative disorders. I have also worked on viruses, bacteria and cell specimens and in the characterization of samples treated with nanostructured materials for drugs delivery and scavenging activity. During last few years I have also worked in the development of reagents and procedures useful in my field of interest publishing and patenting a significant number of works.
