Alessandro Giuffrè (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a Senior Researcher of the National Research Council of Italy (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - CNR). Since 2020 he is Director of the CNR Institute of Molecular Biology and Pathology (IBPM) in Rome. Since he was awarded his PhD in Biochemistry in 1997, he has investigated the molecular mechanisms underlying the metabolism of O2, nitric oxide (NO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and related reactive species, with the ultimate goal of elucidating the role of these molecules in human physiology and pathophysiology. His research has focused on a variety of microbial and human enzymes and their ability to metabolize O2, NO and related species, as well as on the effects of NO on cellular bioenergetics. More recently his interests have extended also to H2S, another important small gaseous molecule with a key role in cell signaling. Currently, he has signed 95 articles in peer-reviewed International journals, with an H-index of 35 and more than 3.500 citations.
