Alessio Gioia, a former student of the UniSR Biotechnology Degree Course, was awarded the "Best oral presentation" award among young researchers under 40. The scientific committee of the AINP Onlus (Italian Neuropathic Peripheral Association) awarded the prize on the occasion of the annual Meeting of the Association for the Study of the Peripheral Nervous System held in Padua on April 13th.

The title of the presentation by Dr. Gioia is "Unveiling the role of niaspan in peripheral nerve regeneration"; the study illustrated the effects of Niaspan in the regeneration and remyelination processes of the peripheral nervous system in an animal model of hereditary neuropathy.

Dr. Gioia, after obtaining a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Biotechnology at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, is now a fellow at the Neuromuscular Repair Unit, coordinated by Dr. Stefano Previtali.

"This was the first congress in which I presented data orally" says Alessio. “Bringing my data to a conference with the privilege of having an audience of experts in the field was very stimulating and highly educational for me. Being awarded was a personal satisfaction and a great honor, as well as a strong motivational stimulus".
