Valentina Venuti received a degree in physics (110/110 cum laude) from University of Messina (UNIME), Messina, Italy, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in physics in 2001 from the same university. From 30/03/2011 Venuti was University Researcher (SSD FIS/01-Experimental Physics) at the Department of Physics, UNIME. Venuti became Associate Professor in the sector 02/B1-Experimental Physics of Matter and Associate Professor in the sector 02/B3-Applied Physics. Venuti received prize for scientific activity in physics in 1999 reserved to doctors graduated in physics after May 1996, by the Italian Physical Society (SIF), award "Best Oral Presentation" in section 2 "Physics of Matter (condensed matter, atoms, molecules, and plasmas)" organized by the SIF during LVXXXVI National Congress (Palermo, October 6-11, 2000), and Young Researchers Award from the UNIME for the years 2004 and 2008, for the best scientific production in the science and technology area. Venuti is coauthor of 114 publications on ISI rated journals and 12 in proceedings of international conferences with referee and books and 16 oral contributions to national and international conferences and overall 118 communications to congresses. Venuti’s area of research and expertise include the experimental study of structural, dynamic, and ultrafast relaxation processes in hydrogen-bonded liquids in "bulk," in solution, confined within nanoporous matrices; chemical and physical investigation on the structural and dynamic properties of biological systems, drug/carriers systems having suitable solubility and stability for their application in the pharmaceutical field.
