My Lab at start

In 2000, I established a research unit committed to the study of the membrane transport of dietary flavonoids. My lab’s feature has been to be open to students and researchers, with no access criteria.

By a mix of openness and fund raising, my lab could train and pay a contract to 30 researchers

Research jobs funded by competitive research grants. The total duration of post-doc contracts was of nearly 2 dozens years.

The generous support for a research experience in my lab went from national and international agencies

Many researchers got support from research agencies to stay in my lab.

Visiting researchers in my lab have obtained meaningful scientific results 

Most visitors have published their results obtained by collaborating in my lab. Many of them have teamed up in my lab, so publishing joint scientific papers.

My lab today 

At present, I am the principal investigator of a team of 5 permanent researchers at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Trieste, forming the unit of Molecular Nutrition and Regenerative Medicine.

We have our own research specialization, and are ready to catch diverse funding opportunities.
