Giuseppina Martella

Physiology - Bio/09


Graduated in Biological Science, specialization pathophysiology at University of Rome Tor Vergata. Specialized in Clinical Pathology at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Ph.D. in Neuroscience at University of Rome Tor Vergata.

Winner of numerous research fellowships at the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

Her research interest is focused on studying the physiopathology of neurological diseases. She has good expertise in synaptic plasticity and basal ganglia circuitry. Since 2000 she acquired good experience in studying voltage-dependent channels on acutely isolated neurons from all basal ganglia nuclei; in cell culture, stereotaxic surgery, and molecular biology to electrophysiology in vitro and ex vivo on neuron and glial cells.

She has an excellent level of expertise in Laboratory Animals treatment and Welfare, as well as in translational research and Human protocols research. Her best goal is translational biomedical research and education.

She is the author of over 60 papers internationally reviewed (H factor = 30) on neurophysiology, neurobiology, molecular biology, cytology, and life sciences.

 She is a referee for several international journals in neurobiology, neurology, neurophysiology, and molecular biology. She is actually on the board of NeuroSci Journal (MDPI) as editor and on the board of Parkinson’s Disease Journal (Hindawi) as Academic Editor.

She also served as guest editor for several international journals.

Eligible Professorship RANK II in Comparative Anatomy and Cytology since 2017.

Eligible Professorship RANK II in Physiology since 2019.

Since 2018, she is a member of the Neuroscience Ph.D. program teaching board at University of Rome Tor Vergata.

She is currently a Senior Researcher at the laboratory of Neurophysiology and Plasticity at Fondazione Santa Lucia IRCCS, where she carries out scientific research on movement disorders and psychiatric disorders.
