Biography:

Sancini Giulio is Assistant Professor of Human Physiology at the School of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milano-Bicocca. He is a member of the Italian Society of Physiology, the Italian Society of Nanotoxicology  the American Physiological Society and he is member  of the Editorial Board of  the World Journal of Respirology, of the Insights in Clinical Pharmacology Journal, and  the Jacobs Journal of Headache.  Reviewer of international Peer Review Journal, PlosOne, Toxicology Letters, Inhalation Toxicology, Clinics in Oncology Review, Journal of Zhejiang University-Science. During these years G. Sancini's main research activity was fully oriented to  the electrophysiological investigations of the neuronal firing properties and synaptic currents within the cortical and hippocampal circuitries. From 2005 on G. Sancini’s main ongoing research interests are in neurophysiology, transmembrane voltage-gated currents and postsynaptic potentials, functional alterations of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) related to CNS diseases,  nanoparticles (NPs) cell/tissue interactions, NPs biodistribution and fate, also involving the assessment of pulmonary and systemic response to particulate air pollution (PM) exposure. Sancini, has a long experience in electrophysiological measures of synaptic currents. He has an established know how and equipment in neurophysiology, plasma membrane, cellular electrophysiology and pharmacology. G. Sancini’s Unit  is equipped with cell culture facilities, set up of electro-physiological investigations (patched slice full setup with wide field fluorescence time lapse microscopy), advanced microscopy and animal facility. His publications include 46 peer-reviewed articles (H index: 21; total citations 1240, Scopus). He has given several oral presentations to national and international meetings.
