Prof. Ugo Carraro is a Scientific Consultant at IRRCS Fondazione Ospedale San Camillo, Venice-Lido, Italy, and Senior Scholar of Padua University, Italy. There, he worked as Professor of General Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, and as Founder and Principal Investigator of the Laboratory of Translational Myology of the Interdepartmental Research Center of Myology – CIR-Myo. Recipient of many National and International Grants, Prof. Carraro is a world-class leader in molecular and structural analyses of skeletal muscle. He developed bi-dimensional gel electrophoresis for myosin light chains, in particular the embryonic isoform, and was the first to separate myosin heavy chain isoforms of mammal muscles. He discovered the long-term potential of denervated muscle to survive denervation by non-compensatory myofiber regeneration and the positive effects of sport life-style on reinnervation of old muscles. Expert of histochemical and ultrastructural morphometry of human skeletal muscle biopsies, he is applying his expertise in translational myology approaches by analyses of denervation-reinnervation and aged skeletal muscles. His main research interests are: basics of muscle plasticity and their applications to medical research (translational myology) in: i) functional electrical stimulation of denervated human muscle; ii) role of apoptosis and regenerative myogenesis in exercise-induced muscle damage. Prof. Carraro is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Translational Myology (EJTM), previously known as Basic Applied Myology (BAM).
