He graduated cum lauda in Biological Sciences in 1978, cum lauda in Medicine and Surgery in 1999, PhD degree in Experimental Medicine: Atherosclerosis in 1988, at the University of Siena, Italy. Present position is at University of Siena, as Researcher (Professore Aggregato), Dpt. Medical Biotechnology and member of the Presidio di Qualità (“quality in teaching”).
Since 1975 to 2014 he has produced #347 works (Clinical Pathology/Biomedicine, in particular at morphological and morphometrical level and Astrobiology: #114 papers, #58 proceedings and other books, #4 books, #131 abstract, others). Impact Factor: 109.7.
At present (since 2001/2002), he teaches "General Pathology and Phisiopathology" , “Microbiological Techniques” and 7 other courses.
A National Commision awarded him the "Leonardo" prize (2010) for Scientific Popularization (Città di Salerno). An international Commission awarded him the minor planet 55418 ("Bianciardi"). He is Vice-President of Unione Astrofili Italiani, Director of the Astronomical Observatory of Montarrenti (Siena), Editor of the scientific paper “Astronomia”He is married with Elena Pisanu, and he has a son, Lorenzo
