Highly motivated and enthusiastic inflammation research scientist with a strong focus on therapeutic strategies. -Extensive knowledge in inflammatory cells, both in cardiovascular diseases but also in cancer research (Flow cytometry). -Skills in the study of cardiovascular physiology through mice models of cardiovascular diseases. -Strong background in the molecular and cellular mechanisms of post-ischemic angiogenesis and the techniques to study them (cell culture, Microscopy, Immuno-histochimestry, PCR, western blot, ELISA). -Extensive experience in writing grants and papers in peer-reviewed journals -Ability to present posters and oral communications to national and international congresses -Collaborating with international teams -Teaching and training students.


Current Experience

  • Post-Doc
    Since December 2010
    Therapeutic angiogenesis in cardiovascular diseases. Key areas of research -I am currently investigating the role of inflammation and miRNAs in myocardial infarction. -I have achieved to set-up a new method to increase the therapeutic potential of cell therapy in peripheric artery disease. Technical skills -Flow cytometry, fluorescent microscopy -in vivo experiments: surgical procedures: mice models of myocardial infarction and critical limb ischemia, bone-marrow transplantation, intravenous and intraperitoneal injections -cell culture: human mesenchymal stem cells, endothelial progenitor cells, mononuclear cells (monocytes, macrophages)
