Organizational know-how and personal skills

I have focused my studies on clinical and translational medicine.

During my thesis and PhD course I focused my research activity on cellular electrophysiology at University of Milano-Bicocca. In this period I studied the biophysical effect of a genetic mutation in a neuronal nicotinic receptor, associated to inherited infant epilepsy, improving my knowledge of the physiological function of ligand-gated ion channels.

After that I have continued my studies in the field of channelopathies at University Vita-Salute San Raffaele and now I am studying several forms of hereditary arrhythmogenic diseases and their genetic basis, such as Brugada syndrome and Long Qt Syndrome.

Indeed my project is focused on the detection of new causative mutations associated to these pathologies on new candidate genes mostly encoding for cardiac voltage-gated channels, using Sanger sequencing and next generation sequencing.

I have learnt to plan independently the experiments and to perform autonomously the data analysis. I have prepared communications at congress (posters and oral presentations), papers and grants. In 2006 I did a practical course for students of degree course of Biological Science at University of Milano-Bicocca; I have been tutor for several trainees in laboratory. I have a close collaboration with the clinicians of the arrhytmology unit of San Raffaele Hospital, doing often genetics counselling for our patients enrolled in our study.

From 2012 I am university course teacher of Biological Science at degree course of Physiotherapy at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University. In my work I want to share my knowhow in a cooperative research team, to improve my knowledge in the translational medicine and to work in a stimulating group.

November 2008-today: I work in the laboratory directed by Prof. M. Ferrari at Genomic Unit for the Diagnosis of Human Pathologies, Centre for Translational Genomics and Bioinformatics, San Raffaele Scientific Institute.

 

My research projects are focused on the hereditary arrhythmogenic diseases and cardiomiopathy that can lead sudden death in young asymptomatic adults.

In my study I am trying to highlight a correlation between the presence of genetic variants with increased arrhythmic risk for our patients to obtain an useful method to integrate genetic data with clinical variables to improve risk stratification and management of patients. In my research project I aimed at identifying new causative genes involved in this genetically heterogeneous pathologies, exploiting next generation sequencing. I also studied a new mutation identified in our patient in the causative gene of Brugada syndrome and we have evaluated the effect of mutation on biophysical properties of cardiac action potential in collaboration with a laboratory of cardiac physiology at University of Milano-Bicocca. Now we are performing the functional characterization of other causative mutation of Brugada Syndrome in iPS. I am now performing exome study of families with a rare arrhythmogenic phenotype to identify the causative genetic mutation using Next generation sequencing.

 

November 2005-November 2008: PhD student of DIMET (PhD program in Translational and Molecular Medicine) in laboratory of cellular physiology of central nervous system at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Tutor: Prof. Andrea Becchetti.

 

My PhD research project was focused on the study of the efficacy and the possible side effects of antiepileptic drugs (such as Carbamazepine and Oxcarbazepine) used in patients with a form of nocturnal epilepsy. I have tested these drugs in vitro on immortalized human cells.

 

September 2004 – October 2005: thesis in the laboratory of cellular physiology of central nervous system at University of Milano-Bicocca. Tutor: Prof. Andrea Becchetti.

 

In this period I have done studies in vitro using the patch clamp technique to understand the effects of the first causative mutation identified in the gene coding for alfa2 subunit of the neuronal nicotinic receptor, linked to a form of ADNFLE (autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy). This project was in collaboration with Prof. G. Casari (San Raffaele Institute) for the genetic aspects of the project.
