Biography

Dr. H. Amalia Pasolli has extensive expertise in the field of electron microscopy as applied to biological sciences. She did her Ph.D. at the Center of Electron Microscopy of Cordoba National University in Argentina under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Agustin Aoki, where she employed biochemical and electron microscopic techniques to characterize different pituitary cell types and mechanisms underlying hormone secretion. Dr. Pasolli conducted postdoctoral research with Dr. Wieland Huttner in the Department of Neurobiology at Heidelberg University in Germany, where she studied the biogenesis of secretory vesicles in neuroendocrine cells. She returned to Cordoba as Assistant Professor and Researcher at the Center for Electron Microscopy and returned every year to Heidelberg to teach a practical course in electron microscopy for biology students of Heidelberg University. In 2002, Dr. Pasolli moved to The Rockefeller University in New York to join the Laboratory of Mammalian Cell Biology and Development, directed by Prof. Dr. Elaine Fuchs, a HHMI investigator, as Research Assistant Professor.  In 2008, she was promoted to Research Associate Professor. At Rockefeller, Dr. Pasolli conducted ultrastructural studies to investigate skin cell biology and development, with a focus on skin stem cells. She joined Janelia Research Campus in 2014. She is very interested in applying her EM skills to connectomics and correlative light-electron microscopy techniques.
