Biography

Dr. Azzura Greco obtained her PhD in molecular biology from Sapienza University of Rome and graduated in 2008. In 2008 she undertook a post-doctoral training at the Laboratory of Molecular Oncology, at Sapienza University, studying the epigenetic mechanisms effecting Hedgehog pathways, underlying brain development and their deregulation in cancer. She then moved to the Neuroscience and Trauma Centre in the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University, where she studied neural stem cells using in-vivo mouse models approaches. Following two successful postdoctoral positions she has now established her own research group within the Institute of Hepatology, Foundation of Liver Research, London. Her research group is interested in post-translational modifications affecting chromatin compaction, as a result of activation or inactivation of the genes involved in fatty liver disease and is also currently investigating the role of antioxidants in gene regulation by epigenetic modifications. Fat-induced in-vitro and in-vivo models are currently used to investigate the expression of metabolic genes regulated by epigenetic marks.
