Area di ricerca

L’area di ricerca è nell’ambito delle neuroscienze, con particolare interesse verso lo studio dell’attività sinaptica e dei meccanismi di controllo dell’omeostasi degli ioni calcio e ferro in neuroni e cellule gliali, sia in condizioni fisiologiche che patologiche. Calcio e ferro sono infatti essenziali per l’attività neuronale, ma possono entrambi contribuire a processi neurotossici e a malattie neurodegenerative. Ciò avviene, ad esempio, nell’atassia di Friedreich, caratterizzata da dismetabolismo del ferro e da conseguente stress ossidativo.

Tecniche avanzate di microscopia a fluorescenza, approcci di biologia cellulare e molecolare e modelli neuronali e gliali in vitro (ottenuti da colture murine primarie o derivati da iPSC umane) sono utilizzati per studiare meccanismi fisiopatologici nel SNC, aprendo così la possibilità a nuovi approcci terapeutici.

Research fields

The main areas of research are in the field of neuroscience, with particular interest in the study of synaptic activity as well as of the mechanisms for calcium and iron handling in neurons and glial cells, both in physiological and pathological conditions. Calcium and iron are indeed essential to neuronal activity, but they can both contribute to neurotoxic processes and neurodegenerative diseases. This is the case, for example, in Friedreich's ataxia, characterized by iron mishandling and by the consequent oxidative stress.

Advanced techniques of fluorescence microscopy, cellular and molecular biology approaches and neuronal and glial in vitro models (obtained from primary murine cultures or derived from human iPSC) are used to study pathophysiological mechanisms in the CNS, thus opening the possibility to new therapeutic approaches.
