Proposals for thesis
The research activity focuses on the study of natural compounds with pharmacological activity, mainly at cardiovascular level, also in relation to aging. The search lines are:

1. study of medicinal plants with antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and cicatrizant activity;

2. detection of scavenging activity (DPPH, ORAC, ox-LDL, gly-LDL, HUVEC) of plant extracts and isolated compounds;

3. phytochemical characterization of plant extracts (HPLC-DAD, GC).

Curriculum Vitae
1984: Degree summa cum laude in Pharmacy, University of Padova.
1986-1990: Doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology, Department of Pharmacology, University of Padova, Supervisor: Prof. Giuliana Fassina.
1989: Exchange PhD student, Cardiovascular laboratory, Department of Pharmacology-Division-JHMHC Cardiology, University of Florida (USA), Supervisor: Prof. Luiz Belardinelli
1991-1992: Post-Doc, Department of Pharmacology, University of Padova, and Supervisor: Prof. Giuliana Fassina.
1992: Assistant Professor of Pharmacology (SSD BIO/14), Department of Pharmacology, University of Padova.
2006-present: Associate Professor of Pharmacology (SSD BIO/14), Department of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences, University of Padova.

Since 1987 she is teaching courses of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy, Pharmacognosy, Information and Documentation of Drugs in “Pharmacy”, “Pharmaceutical Chemistry”, “Scientific Information of Drugs" and "Pharmaceutical Sciences Applied” Degree Courses.
Since 2002 she is member of the college Ph.D. degree, first in the "International Research Doctorate in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology" of Institute of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (University of Freiburg), Department of Biochemical Pharmacology (University of Innsbruck) and Department of Pharmacology and Anaesthesiology (University of Padova), then for PhD course in "Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Intensive Therapy", lastly in the PhD Program in “Pharmacological Sciences”.

Her research experience is mainly focused on medicinal plants of traditional use and isolated phytoconstituents, mainly on cardiovascular system. The scientific activity is documented by more than 80 manuscripts published extensively in international journals for the most part, 70 proceedings and more than 120 participations in national and international conferences. The publishing activity also consists of 12 chapters about topics of Pharmacognosy, Pharmacology and Toxicology.

The research is focused on in vitro study of phytoconstituents of medicinal plants with pharmacological activity, mainly in cardiovascular system and aging. The main lines of research are summarized below.

1. Study of plants traditionally used for hypoglycaemic, hypotensive, antiviral and healing properties (i.e.: Croton lechleri, Casimiroa spp., Momordica charantia etc.).
2. Determination of several pharmacological activities (DPPH, ORAC, LDLox, ROS in HUVEC, BSA assay) of plant extracts and natural compounds.
3. Characterization of phytoconstituents by LC and GC analyses.
