Manager and chief analyst of the data of “Verona Heart Study”. The most relevant part of research activity and scientific publications concerns cardiovascular disease and atherothrombosis with a specific interest for the genetic basis of ischemic heart disease, as well as for alterations in lipid metabolism and blood coagulation which play a role in cardiovascular pathophysiology
