Dr. Anna Palumbo is currently Research Director at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn. She spent some periods abroad, at INSERM and INSA in France and, as visiting scientist, at NIH, Bethesda and at MRC, Edinburgh. Dr. Anna Palumbo has authored and co-authored several international publications and also working as a reviewer for reputed professional journals. Her research interests are mainly focused on marine organisms. In particular, she investigated the biosynthesis, signalling and roles of nitric oxide in relation to cuttlefish defence system and ascidian development. More recently, research interests have been focused to understand how marine organisms are responding and may adapt to the increasing pressure exerted by climatic changes and human activities. The actions of some environmental conditions (acidification, toxic bloom, polluting agents) have been examined on marine organisms at different life phases by laboratory or field experiments. Moreover, great attention has been also focused on the biological properties of marine bioactive molecules with the aim to develop pharmacological applications.
