Personal profile


PhD in "Human Biology: cellular and molecular bases", University of Torino, Italy

MSc in Biological Sciences, University of Torino, Italy

Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to neuronal death and neurodegeneration in central nervous system diseases. I am particularly interested in mechanisms underlying Parkinson’s disease by elucidating the cellular functions of DJ-1 – a protein linked to rare inherited forms of Parkinson’s. This work may ultimately provide insight into novel therapeutic strategies for this disorder.
