Erika Iervasi, PhD student in Hemato Oncology and Internal Clinical-Translation Medicine: Autoimmune Diseases and Self-Inflammation, Physiopatological Aspects and Diagnostics at the University of Genoa, currently carries out her scientific research activities and training at the Neuronal Death and Neuroprotection Laboratory at the IRCCS Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research in Milan under the supervision of Professor Tiziana Borsello.
The objective of her research is to study of the quadripartite synapse in an in vitro 3D model in order to analyze the key processes underlying synaptic function/dysfunction.

Graziella Agrò did her B.A. degree thesis, entitled "The specific JNK inhibitor peptide (D-JNKI1) prevents motor deficits and dendritic spine dysfunction in Angelman Syndrome mouse model" under the supervision of Prof. Borsello at the IRCCS Institute of Pharmacological Research Mario Negri in Milan.
She is currently a research fellow in the Neuronal Death and Neuroprotection laboratory and her research aims to study the role of JNK in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Francesco Santarella carried out his master thesis, entitled “Effects of exogenous corticosterone on retrotransposons reactivation and stress-related behaviours in female c57bl/6 mice: a pilot study", under the supervision of Prof. Thorsell, at Linköping University in Sweden. He is currently a research fellow in the lab of Prof. Borsello at the Mario Negri Institute and his reseach is aimed to identify new biomarkers for synaptic dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders.
