Generation of a novel in vitro system to investigate the effect of ageing on the articular cartilage
This project aims to generate an in-vitro tool to determine the effect of ageing on cartilage physiology function.
I have a degree in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology acquired at the University of Padova (Italy) in 2006. I moved to the UK in the same year to work for Glaxo Smith Kline until September 2007 when I then started my PhD at Queen Mary University of London, which was focussed on the characterization of the Wnt signalling pathway in the articular cartilage and osteoarthritis. I joined the University of Surrey in 2017 as lecturer in Musculoskeletal Biology at the School of Veterinary Medicine.
