Giuseppe Musumeci was graduated with top grades in Human Movement Sciences (Kinesiology), majoring in Biomedical Sciences (Prevention and Adapted Physical Education) from Catania University Medical School (Catania, Italy). He was then awarded a four-year grant for a Human Movement Science Ph.D. (doctorate). Also he carried out his research activity at the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Orthopedic Surgery, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore (Maryland, USA); the AO Research Institute, Davos (Switzerland); and the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Medical University of Graz (Austria).

He is collaborating with several researchers and excellence centres in foreign and Italian universities. He is Principal Investigator or scientific collaborator in a number of Italian and international peer-reviewed research projects. Dr. Musumeci has been awarded national and international research prizes. He is a member in different Italian and international association of Anatomy, Histology, Kinesiology, Sport Medicine and Exercise. Since 2002 until today he has been Peer Reviewer in national and international scientific projects and in several international scientific journals. Dr. Musumeci has been speaker and scientific director at several Italian and international meetings and co-author’s in several books manual regarding anatomy, kinesiology and musculoskeletal disorders.

In 2015 he passed the national selection to become Associate Professor (Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale) with a score exceeding the three reference medians for his scientific area.

Dr. Giuseppe Musumeci has been an Assistant Professor in Human Anatomy (scientific area BIO\16; macro area 05/H1) since 1 November, 2008. His current affiliation is the Department of Biomedical and Biotechnological Sciences.


Dr. Musumeci teaches Human Anatomy in the following degree courses: Medical School; Human Movement Sciences; Physiotherapy; Biomedical Radiology Techniques; Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology. He also teaches Human Anatomy in several post-graduate Specialisation Schools and in one post-graduate Master degree programme of the University of Catania. He has been a thesis supervisor and tutor for several students of the above degree courses.


Dr. Musumeci's main research fields include the morphological, molecular and biochemical aspects of osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal conditions and the relative effects of diet, ageing and physical activity, lubricin expression, tissue engineering for tissue regeneration. Further areas of interest include, cardiovascular and respiratory medicine, neuroscience and cancer. In these fields Dr. Musumeci has investigated the biological, molecular, histological, immunohistochemical, and histomorphometric aspects, the microscopic structure, and the histopathological characteristics of the tissues involved.

He has co-authored in several peer-reviewed publications in international scientific journals.
