Predoc, PhD and Post-doc students

Francesco Antoniani , Research Fellow

Francesco is studying how cells cope with proteotoxic stress conditions, with focus on the interplay between the protein quality control system and exosomes as a spreading mechanism in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

 

Marco Cimino, PhD student

Marco just joined our research group. Marco is studying the implication of molecular chaperones in neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases.

 

 

Enza Maria Verde, Research Fellow

Enza is studying the implication of HSPB8 in the stress response in ALS cells and how drugs that modulate HSPB8 expression influence cellular proteostasis and stress granule dynamics.

 

 Laura Mediani, Postdoc

Laura is studying how the nucleus copes with different cellular stressors, focusing on molecular chaperones. She is also studying how disease-linked mutations in the genes encoding for HSPB8 and BAG3 affect their function in protein quality control. She is using both living and fixed cells.
