epigenetics of neural repair
Patrizia Casaccia

I am interested in translational research in regenerative and personalized medicine. With the help of my team we made several contributions to elucidating the molecular mechanisms responsible for oligodendrocyte differentiation and myelin formation during development. We are now focusing on the role of epigenetics in repair of demyelinated lesion, with a special emphasis on the effect of aging and gender. More recently we have begun to work on the effect of Multiple Sclerosis on neuronal function and on new methodologies for the screening of pharmacological compounds that can favor repair. These new methodologies include the generation of neural stem cells from human skin that can be differentiated into neurons or myelin-forming cells.
