Professional Interests:

My laboratory is interested in cellular alterations underlying the defective performance of the diseased heart and identification of corrective interventions aimed at restoring the functional properties of the myocardium. Our research is centered on signaling pathways activated in the heart following ischemic injury and the interplay between electrical properties of cardiomyocytes and contractile function of the aged heart.

Education Profile:

Graduate Degree: Ph.D.
Graduate Degree Institution: University of Parma, Italy
