Laboratory  of   signal  transduction

at the university of Rome “tor Vergata”


The aim of the Lab is to define molecular mechanisms governing programmed cell death and to reveal program alterarions that can lead to disease.



current  focus

We are currently focusing on a monogenic disease - Friedreich’s Ataxia - in which the deficiency of the mitochondrial protein frataxin causes enhanced susceptibility to stress-induced cell death.
