Guglielmo Antonutto was born in Udine 18/08/1947. He graduated in Biology (M.Sc.) and as M.D. at University of Trieste. He worked as Assistant Professor of Pathological Anatomy and Forensic Medicine at the School of Medicine of the University of Trieste from 1973 to 1988. From 1988 he became Assistant professor of Human Physiology at the School of Medicine of the University of Udine and in 2002 he became Associate professor of Human Physiology. From 2007 he is serving as Full Professor of Exercise and Sport Sciences at the Medical School of the University of Udine.
The research activity from 1988 is mainly concerning the physiological responses of human body to physical exercise and to exposure to extreme environments: namely to space flight (effects of prolonged microgravity exposure o skeletal muscle and cardiovascular system) and hypoxia (effects of high altitude dwelling on hemopoietic system). Therefore, he carried out researches in the following laboratories: Lab. Of Human Physiology at the Karolinska Institutet of Stockholm (S); Institute of Space Medicine of CNES at Toulouse (F); Cosmonauts Training Centre “Y. Gagarin” in Moscow (Ru); Astronauts Training Centre of the European Space Agency in Cologne (D).
From 1975 Guglielmo Antonutto has published 67 peer-reviewed articles indexed in PubMed:
