Curriculum Vitae
Present position: Full Professor of Plant Physiology, University of Padua, Faculty of Science, Dept. of Biology, Padova.

Education and Appointments: July 1974 Doctorate in Biology cum laude, University of Naples; October 1974 winner of a national competition for a doctorate fellowship at Normale Superiore, Pisa; 1975-1976 one year fellowship c/o Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Prof. A. Garcia-Bellido); 1976 short EMBO fellowship Inst. of Botany, University of Nottingham (Prof. E. Cocking); 1976 Research Fellow Institute of Mutagenesis and Differentiation National Research Council, Pisa (Prof. M. Terzi); 1983-1984 Research Associate, dept. of Genetics and Plant Pathology, University of California at Berkeley (Prof. Z.R. Sung); 1986 Research Fellow, International Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, Naples; 1987-1990 Associate Professor of Plant Physiology, University of Basilicata, Faculty of Agriculture at Potenza; 1991-2000 Associate Professor of Plant Physiology, University of Padua, Faculty of Science at Padova.

In all these years she has been responsible of National and International research projects, has acted as scientific referee for the European Union, the National Science Foundation of USA and various journals. She is past general Secretary of the IAPTC (International Association Plant Tissue Culture). She has been a director of the Italian Society of Plant Physiology from 1995 to 2002 and from 2009 to 2014 a director of the Italian Society of Plant Biology. She has been a member of the School of Doctorate in Bioscience and Biotechnology of the University of Padova, acting as coordinator of the curriculum “Biotechnology”. Since the beginning of 2014, she is a member of the new School of Doctorate in Bioscience, acting as a coordinator of the curriculum “Biochemistry & Biotechnology “. She is the National Representative of the FESPB since September 2012. She is author of more than one hundred scientific papers.

Research areas
Fiorella Lo Schiavo è autore di più di 100 pubblicazioni scientifiche su riviste internazionali dalle quali si evincono le aree di ricerca di interesse. L'ambito delle ricerche riguarda la biologia cellulare e molecolare vegetale.
Ha indagato le alterazioni del differenziamento cellulare utilizzando mutanti del processo di embriogenesi somatica.
Ha studiato meccanismi di percezione e trasduzione del segnale ormonale, inizialmente dell’auxina e più recentemente delle citochinine.
Ha condotto studi su alcuni canali, in particolare di potassio, indagandone anche la loro funzione in alcuni processi differenziativi.
Ha indagato alcuni meccanismi di base dei processi di senescenza di organo utilizzando le colture cellulari come sistema modello, in particolare, con studi sulle fasi finali della morte programmata cellulare della senescenza.
Recentemente ha analizzato e continua ad investigare il ruolo di importanti molecole segnali quali calcio e ROS indotte stress abiotici in piante modello e in risomediante tecniche di imaging.
