  • I aim to exploit the /potential of epigenetics to better understand and treat
    neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders, /with a focus on Multiple
    Sclerosis disease. By integrating state-of-art methodological and causal
    approaches in molecular, cellular and experimental neuroscience into a
    clinical framework, I hope to fully translate novel knowledge into clinical
    applications, with the prospect to potentially /revolutionize translational
    research and personalized medicine/. My expertise relies on robust
    theoretical and practical knowledge in /in-vivo/ studies of models of
    neuropathology as well as diverse molecular and cellular skills in
    epigenetics and neuroscience that I acquired during my career. In a word, my
    scientific ambition is driven by a rooted passion for epigenetics and
    ever-growing motivation to unravel its potential in clinical neuroscience.
