Curriculum

Mario Rosario Buffelli è prof. Associato di Fisiologia e attualmente docente di Fisiologia Umana nei corsi di laurea in Biotecnologie, Bioinformatica, Fisioterapia e Tecniche di Laboratorio Biomedico. La sua attività di ricerca è incentrata sui meccanismi molecolari, strutturali e funzionali che regolano la plasticità neuronale in condizioni fisiologiche e patologiche (malattia di Alzheimer, autismo e di altre malattie neurologiche). In particolare, il ruolo della glia (microglia e astrociti) e dei segnali intracellulari alla base della formazione dei contatti sinaptici, della crescita assonale, della neurogenesi e dell’apoptosi.

 

Buffelli Mario Rosario is Associate Professor of Physiology and currently is teaching in the courses of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Physiotherapy and Biomedical Laboratory techniques. His main research interest is focused on the molecular, structural and functional mechanisms regulating neuronal plasticity in physiological and pathological conditions (Alzheimer's disease, autism and other neurological diseases). In particular, the role of glia (microglia and astrocytes) and the intracellular signals underlying the formation of synaptic contacts, axonal growth, neurogenesis and apoptosis.
