He then passed to the Department of Systems and Computer Science of the University of Florence as full professor of Biological Systems from 1980 to 1985. Since 1985 he is full professor of Biomedical Instrumentation at the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems of the University of Bologna. From 1985 to 2006 he was Coordinator of the PhD Course in Biomedical Engineering (consortium of the Universities of Ancona, Bologna, Florence, Naples "Federico II", Rome "La Sapienza") and from 1995 to 1998 President of the Board of Electronic Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Bologna. From 2006 to 2009 he was director of the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems of the above University.

 His current main research interests include the measurement, modelling and control of physiological systems, in particular cardiorespiratory and renal. He has published over 50 full papers in international journals, which appeared in: IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Bullettin of Mathematical Biology, Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing, International Journal of Biomedical Computing, Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, Annals of Biomedical Engineering, International Journal of Artificial Organs, Clinical Science, Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation.
