Diego Guidolin received his Ph.D. degree in solid state physics at the Padova University. During internships at the Institute of Human Physiology of the Modena University and at the Neuroscience Department of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, he developed applications of analytical microscopy techniques (cytometry, stereology, microdensitometry, photometry, and 3D reconstruction) to biological problems, with particular reference to the computer-assisted image analysis methods. Working as the Head of the Morphology and Analytical Microscopy Unit of the FIDIA Research Laboratories, Padova, Italy, his activity was mainly focused on neurobiological and osteoarticular research programs. He serves actually as a Senior Scientist at the Department of Human Anatomy and Physiology (Section of Anatomy) of the Padova University with scientific interest aimed at the development of quantitative methods in microanatomy as well as at the study of factors involved in intercellular communication and in the regulation of tissue remodelling processes. His present research activity is mainly focused on the role of endogenous peptides in the modulation of angiogenesis and receptor-receptor interaction. He is a Member of the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC), the European Microscopical Society (EMS), the American Association of Anatomists (AAA), the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS), and the Società Italiana di Scienze Microscopiche (SISM). He (co)authored more than 180 papers.
