Cilia dysfunction and rare diseases




I joined TIGEM in 1994 and it has been the setting of my growth as a scientist: from a human geneticist identifying disease genes to my current functional and translational studies. I enjoy mentoring young students and witnessing them flourish, TIGEM is the ideal place for opportunities and a stimulating research environment.
