"Massimo Grattarola"

Massimo Grattarola (1950-2002) graduated in Physics in 1975 at the University of Genova, Italy, with a final dissertation on "Computer simulation of the cerebral linguistic circuit" under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Borsellino, father of Cybernetics in Italy. As witnessed by the argument of his dissertation, since the beginning he showed a great scientific curiosity for an interdisciplinary approach towards the world of biophysics and neurosciences. After a training period at the research centre for Biophysics and Cybernetics in Camogli (near Genova) he spent one year, as a Research Associate, at the Department of Biophysics and Physiology, Temple University, Philadelphia, U.S.A. During this period he focused his research activities on optical cytometry. He worked on a research field that we can now define as "Cellular Engineering", investigating the effects of electromagnetic fields at cellular and molecular level.
