Research interests

My previous research focused on understanding the basis of fast and slow disease progression in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The aim of this study was to validate the gene expression changes identified and establish a correlation between mRNA and miRNA expression level, in order to recognize target for slowing down disease progression.
