Team - “Giovanni Galli” Laboratory of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Metabolism-Mass Spectrometry
Phone +3902/50318344My research is mainly focused on two different projects. The first aims at the characterization of new proteins involved in the regulation of energy metabolism in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. The second project investigates new molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of energy metabolism and neuronal differentiation.
From October 2017 she joined the G. Galli mass spectrometry laboratory as a student.

In 2018 she obtained her Ph.D. Degree in Biochemical Sciences with a research project entitled “The role of HDAC3 in the pathophysiology of adipose tissue”, carried out at Giovanni Galli Laboratory. Currently, her research project is focusing on the study of how epigenetic mechanisms evoked by Hdac3 ablation in adipose tissue influence molecular networks that regulate metabolism, especially in the context of obesity and metaflammation.
Phone +3902/50318344Silvia Pedretti is a PhD student in Biochemical Sciences at the DISFEB. Since 2015, she has been working at the Giovanni Galli laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Nico Mitro. Her research is focused on the study of a new mitochondrial regulator. The main purpose is to understand the role of this protein in energy metabolism of skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Furthermore, she is exploring the molecular mechanism involved in neuronal differentiation.
Carolina Peri is a PhD student in Biochemical Science at DISFEB.
Phone +3902/50318345Dalma Cricrí is a research fellow at DISFEB. Her research project is about on the role of Histone Deacetylases in adipose tissue focusing on Histone Deacetylase 3 during adipocyte differentiation. Her project also includes the generation of a CRISPR-Cas9 model to knockout the expression of Histone Deacetylases 3 in mesenchymal stem cells.
From January 2017 she joined the G. Galli mass spectrometry laboratory as a thesis student.
