Biography
Adriana Carol Eleonora Graziano was born in Catania, Italy, in 1986. She received the master?s degree (with honors) in pharmacy and the Ph.D. degrees in neuroscience from the University of Catania, Italy, in 2010 and 2014, respectively. In 2014, she received the ?Federfarma-Catania award? for her academic carrier. Since 2015, she was a young member of the Italian Society of Physiology. Currently, she is Adjunct Professor of Physiology and Postdoc Research Fellow at University of Catania, Italy. Her current research interests include the generation of in vitro cell culture models of neurodegeneration and inflammation to evaluate the cellular mechanisms and their modulation by of natural or synthesis compounds, with a special attention to the physiology of the oligodendrocytes and to the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells. She states that the enlightening of pathophysiological processes, like the molecular mechanisms of Krabbe leukodystrophy, will be possible by revisiting the processes of cellular and tissue homeostasis.
