Scientific Interests
My scientific interests include the study of oligodendroglia-neurons crosstalk, the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the regulation of heterogeneity and plasticity of oligodendrocyte progenitor cells in health and disease, de-/dis- myelinating diseases and the molecular mechanisms involved in the process of re-myelination after damage.
