Group leader of the Lab. of Environmental Physiology (Dept. of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences, University of Bologna).

2006 to present day: Member of the Biomedical and Applied Research Center (CRBA, http://www.crba.it [http://www.crba.it/] ) of the University Hospital Sant 'Orsola-Malpighi of Bologna. This collaboration, which is still ongoing, has led to the publication of 8 papers.

Dr. Guarnieri has expertise in cell biology, cell signaling pathways and networks. Dr. Guarnieri research focus is targeted on cellular and molecular events sustaining and modulating the inflammatory phenotype. In particular, she is interested in 1) the relationship between inflammation and stem cells differentiation 2) the environmental etiology of inflammation, with particular regard to endocrine interference. She is also interested in NSAIDs modulating effects of cell proliferation, with a particular attention on cyclooxygenase /lipoxygenase inhibition and membrane-related events. She also conducted research in neurophysiology, with a particular attention for retinal neurotransmission
