Curriculum

My research activity started from the study of muscle loss with aging (Sarcopenia), and in particular of its mechanisms and  its relationship with disability and functional status.
In 2001 I attended the Nutrition Exercise Physiology and Sarcopenia (NEPS) Laboratory, directed by Professor Ronnen Roubenoff, at the Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center of Boston. During this period I studied in particular the biological mechanisms involved in Sarcopenia and muscle loss, starting there my laboratory experience and practice. In 2002 I attended the Else Kroner-Fresenius-Center for Nutritional Medicine at the Technical University of Munich, directed by Hans Hauner, to study adipocite biology.
Since that my research activity has focused on  the study of skeletal muscle and adipose tissue biology and pathophysiology in different medical settings, in particular in aging and obesity. Recently my scientific efforts have been focused on the biology of adipocytes in the tumor microenvironment.
