My research interest is mainly focused on the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFS), specifically in regards to the Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. In addition, my group is investigating the effect of PTC-readthrough inducer drugs (e.g. ataluren) on the restoration of nonsense mutated SBDS gene expression and function.
I'm willing to create a bridge between the lab bench and the clinic, promoting useful translational research; I would like to gather young and senior multidisciplinary international teams to enhance competitiveness to possible EU research calls; I'm willing to promote international exchange program for young investigators involved in congenital neutropenia research within the Young-EuNet-INNOCHRON program.
