Interessi di ricerca

Studia la dipendenza da alcool, con particolare riguardo all’aspetto molecolare e alle sue basi genetiche, il rischio e l’effetto dell’esposizione fetale all’alcool (sindrome feto-alcolica). Ricerca nuovi marcatori di abuso alcolico e analizza geni relativi alla neurotrasmissione coinvolti nel fenomeno della dipendenza, con particolare attenzione ai recettori oppioidi e al trasportatore della serotonina (5-HTT). Le sue ricerche si focalizzano sulla regolazione trascrizionale in relazione alla presenza di modificazioni epigenetiche e di polimorfismi a singolo nucleotide (SNP).

Object of its studies is alcohol dependence, with particular regard to the molecular aspect and its genetic basis, the risk and effect of fetal exposure to alcohol (fetal alcoholic syndrome). He searches for new markers of alcohol abuse and analyzes genes related to neurotransmission involved in the phenomenon of addiction, with particular attention to opioid receptors and the serotonin transporter (5-HTT). His research focuses on transcriptional regulation in relation to the presence of epigenetic modifications and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
