Lucia Migliore received a degree in biological sciences (cum laude) from the University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, in 1978. From 1978 to 1981, she was a Research Fellow of the National Research Council (CNR) of the Faculty of Veterinary, University of Pisa, and since 1981 she is a Research Scientist in genetics at Faculty of Sciences, University of Pisa. From 1992 to 2002, she was an associate professor of genetics and environmental mutagenesis. In 2002, she became a Full Professor of genetics and, since 2008, of medical genetics at Faculty of Medicine, University of Pisa. Migliore serves as an Evaluator for the EC Research Directorate General “Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources.” and a Member of the Technical Working Group on Integrated Monitoring, EU, and of the Carcinogenicity Taskforce at ECVAM, Ispra, Italy. She was a Member of the Executive of the Italian Society of Genetics and of the Italian Federation of Life Sciences and Secretary-Treasurer of the Italian Society of Environmental Mutagenesis. She is Member of the Permanent Working Group of the European Cytogeneticists Society (cytogenetic toxicology and mutagenesis) and referee for many international Journals. She was the Director of the School of Applied Genetics (2000–2006). Migliore has published more than 95 peer-reviewed scientific articles in the field of genotoxicology, cytogenetics, and neurodegeneration, more than185 abstracts and proceedings of national and international meetings, and six book chapters. She was editor and coauthor of a textbook on environmental mutagenesis (Zanichelli Editore, 2004). She has extensive experience in biomonitoring of human populations exposed to environmental agents; studies on mechanisms of chromosome malsegregation leading to aneuploidy, spontaneous or induced, in human somatic and germ cells; cytogenetics, genetic susceptibility, and environmental factors, involved in neurodegenerative diseases.
