WP5 Leader: Science as public good
I’m a principal investigator at the Department of Hormonal Action Mechanisms, IARFR. My research interests are broad, often at the edge of several disciplines, but mostly related to reproductive biology. I am focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms of early embryo/newborn-maternal interactions leading to successful maintenance of species. My recent studies concern the role of leptin in the programming of reproductive functions over generations In addition, I’ m the head of the Molecular Biology Laboratory, functioning as a core facility. In WELCOME2, I’ll coordinate development and implementation of a Good Laboratory Practice system (GLP) and Research Data Management (RDM) policy to ensure recognition of IARFR’s research and innovation in the European Research Area.
