Curriculum Vitae
Pompeo Volpe earned his M.D. degree from the University of Padova Medical School (July 1979); postdoctoral Fellow (April 1980-March 1984) with Prof. A. Margreth (University of Padova, Italy), Prof. Sidney Fleischer (Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA), and Prof. Elizabeth W. Stephenson (New Jersey University of Medicine and Dentistry, Newark, NJ, USA); Investigator of the National Research Council, Center for Muscle Biology and Physiopathology, Padova (April 1984-December 1987); Associate Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX, USA (January 1988-June 1992); from November 1992, Associate Professor of general Pathology, Institute of general Pathology, University of Messina. Presently, Associate Professor of general Pathology, Department of Experimental Biomedical Sciences, University of Padova.
He has been referee for several scientific journals, and grant reviewer for the National Science Foundation, USA. He is member of the Biophysical Society, USA (1984), the Italian Society of Pathology (1985) and the American Physiological Society, USA (1989).
His research activity has been and is supported by funds obtained from: Italian Ministry of University, Telethon, Italian Space Agency, NIH.
He has published 132 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 17 articles in books or Meeting reports. He has been invited to give 73 lectures and seminars at Italian and foreign Universities, and international meetings.
He is in the list of Top Italian Scientists formulated by the VIA-Academy with a an H-index of 43.
