Genetics and Development
Columbia University Medical Center
I grew up in Boscoreale a small town close to Naples, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. I got my Ph.D. in Human Genetics at Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM), where I worked on inherited retinal diseases and studied the transcriptomics of mammalian photoreceptors. In Gennarino lab I will investigate the cross-talk between PUM1 and PUM2 in mouse and human patient-derived cell lines.
Curiosity drives every aspect of my life. In science, I love diving into complex biological questions and making discoveries. During my free time, I enjoy photography, especially street photography, as well as theatre, travel, and tasting different foods with my wife.
