EDUCATION AND PERSONAL DETAILS
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 form 10 different Countries and European Community and in several international scientific journals (about 60), also he is editor in 11 international journals. Prof. 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. Prof. Musumeci have trained numerous Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows.
Currently I work as a Researcher Professor or Assistant Professor at the Department of Biomedical and Biotechnological Sciences, Human Anatomy and Histology Section, School of Medicine, University of Catania, Italy (www.unict.it). My major research interest is on morphological, molecular and biochemical aspects of osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal conditions and the relative effects of diet, ageing and physical activity. Others research topic of interest are, tissue engineering with the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells from different sources versus a chondrocyte line for gain more insight into tissue regeneration and provide autologous implants with different types of scaffold materials and the correlation between physical activity, ageing and nutrition. Further areas of interest include, cardiovascular and respiratory medicine, neuroscience and cancer. In all my researchers I study different aspects of biological, molecular, histological, immunohistochemical, histomorphometrical and microscopical structure and relative histopathology information and new biomarkers discovery.
My scientific activity began in the year in the year 2004 and today consists of around 250 scientific contributions: 165 publications in international ISI-indexed peer review multidisciplinary scientific journals: in 80% of them I’am first or senior and corresponding author. Also, I published 8 editorials/research monographs in international ISI-indexed peer review multidisciplinary scientific journals, 4 invited magistral lectures (invited speakers), 65 abstracts/poster presentations/communications (invited speakers) in national and international peer-reviewed conference proceedings, 6 chapters in books and 2 in press books (Ediermes, Italy).
