Grants received as principal investigator
2008 recipient of a research grant from the Regione Piemonte (Ricerca Sanitaria Finalizzata) for the investigation of peripheral nerve regeneration after gene therapy and tissue engineering.
2008 - 2009 recipient of a research grant from British Council (ProgrammaCollaborazione Italo-Britannica per giovaniricercatori) for the investigation of peripheral nerve regeneration using an in vitro model of co-culture with adult stem cells and neurons. Collaboration with University of Manchester (UK).
2009 recipient of a research grant from the Regione Piemonte (Ricerca Sanitaria Finalizzata) for a pre-clinical study of peripheral nerve regeneration after nerve repair with chitosan membrane and CD34+ stem cells.
2012 - 2014 and 2013-2016: University research local founding (ex 60%) for the study of peripheral nerve regeneration.
2015 grant in the “World Wide Style program – outgoing mobility” for a project in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux (FR) to study miRNA regulation during peripheral nerve regeneration.
2015 - 2017 recipient of a research grant for the national project entitled “Moving Again: Integrated Therapies to Cure Post-Traumatic Paralysis” funded by “Compagnia di San Paolo - Bando per ilfinanziamento di Progetti di Ricerca di Ateneo/CSP 2014”.
2017 - 2019 recipient of a research grant for the national project entitled “Raccolta e preparazione di nervi periferici umani per la creazione di una banca del nervo” funded by CRT (Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Torino).
The scientific activity is principally based on the experimental study of regeneration of peripheral nerve fibers after simple experimental models of injury, like the crush, or after the use of innovative surgical techniques of nerve repair, liketubulization with biological grafts (muscle-in-vein) or natural based biomaterial conduits (chitosan, silk).
