Paride Mantecca was born in Como, Italy, in 1973. Mantecca received an M.S. degree in biological science (2000) and a Ph.D. degree in animal biology (2004) from the Department of Biology, University of Milan, Milan, Italy. Mantecca also obtained a Postdoctoral degree in biology-ecotoxicology from the Department of Environmental Science, University of Milan Bicocca, Milan, Italy. Mantecca is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences and a Collaborator at the Research Centre of Particulate Matter and Health Risk (POLARIS) at the University of Milan Bicocca, Milan, Italy. Mantecca’s research experience is in reproductive biology and toxicology of invertebrates and vertebrates. Mantecca is actually engaged in the analyses of toxic effects of environmentally relevant substances on in vivo and in vitro systems, with special reference to health hazards from exposure to airborne particulate matter and engineered nanoparticles. Mantecca teaching experience is in histology, comparative anatomy, and cell biology. Mantecca participated in national and international projects dealing with oxidative-induced muscular dystrophies; PM10 and fine PMs toxic effects on humans and laboratory biological models, both in vitro and in vivo; and interactions and effects of engineered and combustion-derived nanoparticles on human cell cultures and aquatic organisms. Mantecca is a Reviewer of international journals of cell and tissue biology and environmental toxicology (nanotoxicology; Journal of Hazardous Materials; Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology; Cell Biology International; Tissue & Cell; Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine). Mantecca is a Member of the European Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), Società Italiana di Scienze Microscopiche (SISM), and European Microscopy Society (EMS).
