Editor-in-Chief of the World Journal of Stem Cells (2020 IF 5.326, Journal Citation Reports), and Editorial Board Member of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences.

His studies aim at exploring Cell Biology in the light of Physics, using magnetic fields, nanomechanical vibration, and light to develop a Regenerative Medicine relying upon the diffusive features of these physical energies, to afford efficient reprogramming in situ of tissue resident stem cells. This strategy is paving the way to a Regenerative/Precision Medicine executed without the needs for cell or tissue transplantation, and based upon the enhancement of our self-healing potential.
