Nicoló Bonora PhD in Functional Biology and Genomics

Course and current status

I did my PhD in the laboratory of Prof Juan Pedro Bolaños of the University of Salamanca (Spain) within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie consortium TINTIN (Training in Neurodegeneration, Therapeutic Intervention and Neurorepair). In the same laboratory, I participate, as research assistant, in two more projects: "Metabolic and redox neuronal reprogramming in vivo as a therapeutic strategy against neurodegenerative diseases" funded by MINECO, and "BATcure: Developing new therapies for Batten Disease" an H2020 funded project.

Furthermore, I spent three months in the laboratory of Prof Gavin Davey in the Trinity College Dublin, awarded by an EMBO Short Term Fellowship.


Scientific summary

During my PhD I studied the role of astrocytic physiological mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mROS) and how they modulate metabolic, antioxidant and survival pathways in astrocytes and neurons, both in vitro and in vivo.
