Scientific and teaching activities

Professor Marco Gesi teaches in the long single cycle degree courses in Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology and in Medicine and Surgery, as well as in the short cycle degree courses, specialization courses and in the Schools of Specialization of the departments in the Area of Health Science. As far as research activities are concerned, Professor Gesi has dealt with various themes, as well as participating in PRIN and FIRB research projects. In the first years of his activity, he looked into the protective effect of typical and new synthesis anxiolytics and the combined effect of drug abuse (ecstasy) and noise stress on the myocardium of laboratory animals. In the subsequent years of his activity, he dealt with the degenerative processes that affect the cerebral monoamine neurons and the changes induced by training methods of differing intensity and duration in the skeletal muscle and in the suprarenal gland of laboratory animals. Since 2012, he has headed research co-financed by the Tuscan Region for joint projects of higher education (POR European Social Fund 2007-2013 Axis IV), in collaboration with the Centre for Computer Assisted Surgery, for both the development of applications of virtual reality to support the topographic vision of the main, normal and pathologic anatomical regions of the skeletal muscle apparatus and for studies aimed at the optimization and application of algorithms to elaborate 3D ultrasound images and for tracking deformable structures in the context of medical and surgical simulators and navigation.
