Giorgio Mori is a Ph.D. degree holder. He studied at the School of Dentistry, University of Bari, Bari, Italy, from 1990 to 1995, and graduated in dentistry with cum laude. He completed a Fellowship at the same university from 1994 to 1996 in the Department of Human Anatomy and Histology, School of Medicine, and was a Ph.D. student at UTHSCSA, San Antonio, TX, USA, from 1997 to 1998. Mori obtained his Ph.D. degree in sciences and cell technologies from the Department of Human Anatomy and Histology, School of Medicine, University of Bari, and was a Postdoc in the same department from 2000 to 2002. Mori completed a Fellowship from 2002 to 2005 in the same department. Since 2006, he has been working as a Researcher in the Department of Biomedical Sciences School of Medicine, University of Foggia, Foggia, Italy. The scientific activity of Mori has been mainly oriented towards bone cell biology, bone resorption, and remodeling, with a particular expertise on in vitro systems. Recently, his interest has been also focused on osteoclast formation in pathological conditions and in microgravity. Many relevant results about the interaction between osteoclasts and osteoblasts and osteoclast formation and activity in tail-suspended rats have been obtained. In parallel, results in understanding the mechanisms regulating bone resorption in solid tumor malignancies with bone involvement as in multiple myeloma and in inflammatory diseases as psoriatic arthritis and periodontitis have been achieved. He is also studying dental pulp stem cells differentiation peculiarities. Mori was a speaker in national and international courses and conferences on bone cells biology and pathology, author and coauthor of national and international scientific publications, and peer reviewer for many scientific journals.
