Emanuele Bruni

Applied Biology - Bio/13


He obtained Bachelor’s degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology, Master’s Degree in Human and Evolutionary Biology cum Laude and Ph.D in Cellular and Molecular Biology, in the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, where he gets also a Second Level Master in Personalized Nutrition cum Laude and the Qualification to practice as a Specialist Biologist. In the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” he continues his professional training with post-graduate grants expanding his technical skills with an internship in Luxembourg, at the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology directed by Prof. Diederich and an internship in Germany, at the Laboratory directed by Prof. Grassinger at the University Hospital of Regensburg, to learn the techniques for setting up and maintaining stroma/cells co-cultures.
In the A.Y. 2019/2020 he obtained a Research Grant entitled: “Effect of natural compounds and metabolic modulators in post-therapy tumor repopulation”, under scientific direction of Prof. Lina Ghibelli, in the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Since A.Y. 2017/2018 he obtained lecturer position at the Faculty of Medicine of Catholic University of Tirana “Nostra Signora del Buon Consiglio” , teaching Biology in the Degree Course in Medicine and Surgery. Since A.Y. 2015/2016 he carried out supplementary didactic/seminar activity in teaching Applied Biology at the School of Specialization in Medical Physics, in the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Since A.Y. 2016/2017 he carried out didactic support and participates as a commission member for the exams of English Course of Nanobiotechnology, Degree Course in Biotechnology. His research activity is focused on identification of novel anti-cancer therapies, studying either physiological mechanisms of apoptotic induction, and the effect of high doses (cytotoxic) and low doses (metronomic) of chemotherapeutic agents on the growth and repopulation of cancer cells. During the years he studied the anti-cancer effects of natural compounds, the anti-apoptotic effects of static and pulsed magnetic fields on biological systems and the biological effects of nanoparticles.
