Maria Giovanna Garone


My research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of gene mutations and RNA function in neurodegenerative diseases, notably Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). I have knowledge in the derivation of patient-specific induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) neuronal cells, by optimizing replicable and robust differentiation protocols to fates such as motor neurons.
