SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am particularly interested in molecular and clinical neuroscience. I would like to learn more about the physiology and pathology of synaptic processes in order to accelerate the development of new therapies and medical treatments. Therefore, I am eager to learn different techniques in the field of gene and cell therapy (e.g. cell dissociation and tissue slicing, cell cultures, stem cells and gene transfer).
