Phone +390250318328

Medical Biotechnologist, PhD in Molecular and Translational Medicine and specialization in Medical Pharmacology. I have gained expertise in the development and characterization of experimental disease models, primarily in the cardiovascular field. My research activity is focused on the impact of gut microbiota on host pathophysiology, particularly on lipid/lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis development.

Alice Ossoli is a post-doctoral fellow at DISFEB since 2015. In 2014 she received the doctorate in Pharmacological Sciences at the Università degli Studi di Milano. Part of her research activity has conducted at the Lipoprotein metabolism lab of NIH headed by Dr. Remaley. The main research activities include the understanding of the atheroprotective and cardioprotective properties of HDL and the study of renal disease caused by lipoprotein alterations in LCAT deficiency.

Chiara Pavanello is a post-doctoral fellow at DISFEB, where she is involved in the study of rare diseases of lipid metabolism. From 2015 to 2018 she worked as a PhD student at Centro E. Grossi Paoletti, under the supervision of Prof. Laura Calabresi, with a project about atherosclerosis in genetic LCAT deficiency. Part of her PhD project was developed at the University Medical Center of Amsterdam, headed by Prof. Stroes, where she focused on the immune aspect of genetic HDL disorders.
