Academic interests

Summary:

As part of the Autophagy group my work aims at unveiling the molecular mechanisms of autophagy. My specific research interest revolves around lipid-binding proteins and their role in human disease. The final goal of the project is to identify novel targets for the generation of future therapeutics of autophagy related diseases.

Main interests:

  • Autophagy
  • Protein homeostasis
  • Neurodegenerative disease
  • Myopathies
  • Mechanotransduction
