Biography

He works at the Department of Experimental Medicine and Surgery, Clinical Biochemistry of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.
He obtained his Bachelor of Biology at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”.
Since 2002 his research was aimed at studying neuronal excitability, ionic channels modulation and mechanisms of action of drugs on the Central Nervous System using electrophysiological techniques on animal models.
Another major field of interest has been the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In this respect, he has focused on the altered functionality of the voltage-dependent-ionic channels and ionotropic receptors in a genetic model of ALS.
In 2006 he obtained the PhD in “Neuroscience” at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata.”
Since 2010 he works in the Laboratory of Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology of the University Hospital of Tor Vergata and his research has expanded in this field.
In 2016 he obtained the Specialization in Clinical Biochemistry and in 2018 the National Scientific Qualification for Associate Professor 05 / E3 of Clinical Biochemistry and Clinical Molecular Biology.
From 2009 to 2019 he teaching in various degree courses at the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science and Sport techniques.
