Medical Genetics - MED/03


He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences discussing the thesis on “Simultaneous saccharification and fermentation as a strategy for the production of bioethanol from lignocellulosic biomass” at the University of Tuscia.

He obtained a Master’s Degree in Human Biology and Evolution discussing the thesis on “Genetic variability in primary Sjogren’s Syndrome: study of polymorphisms associated with the susceptibility and phenotype of the disease” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.

He obtained the qualification to the profession of Biologist at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.
His PhD in Applied Biotechnology and Translational Medicine is entitled “Genomic variability and expression of microRNAs in Diabetic Neuropathy” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.

He is undergoing specialist training at the Specialization School of Medical Genetics, at the “Tor Vergata” University of Rome.

His research activities are focused on the study of genetic and epigenetic contribution in multifactorial diseases (Sjogren’s Syndrome, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, COVID-19) and on Pharmacogenetic studies (involvement of the genetic component in the response to pharmacological treatment in terms of efficacy and toxicity).

The scientific activity is documented by 34 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and h-index = 14 (Scopus).
He is a member of the Italian Society of Human Genetics (SIGU).
