Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

I am a natural scientist with expertise in developmental biology and molecular biology. My interest in developmental biology ranges from the biological processes involved in development, stemness or homeostasis to the degeneration of molecular players resulting in pathological processes such as cancer. Currently, I am involved in studies of the anthropic impact on marine organisms (considering both ecological and human health aspects), looking also at the digestive system of non-vertebrate marine models. A comparative and evolutionary approach using of non-vertebrate marine animals as model systems is absolutely complementary to the knowledge of the vertebrate/mammalian systems. Finally, to study the biology of marine organism could provide also biological sources for bioactive compounds or macromolecules.
