Rosanna Avola
Researcher, Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, National Research Council, Italy
 
Biography
Rosanna Avola was born in Enna, Italy, in 1985. She received the master?s degree in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies, University of Catania, Italy, in 2013. In 2017, she received the Ph.D. degrees in neuroscience from the University of Catania, Italy. From 2017, she held a number of qualified academic tutor and research posts, including a research fellowship at the University of Catania, Italy. In 2018, she managed to get her own research fellowship at Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, National Research Council (C.N.R.), Catania, Italy. She is interested in many research topics including the generation of in vitro cell culture models of inflammation and neurodegeneration, the evaluation of the cellular mechanisms and their modulation by nutraceutical compounds in physiological and pathophysiological in vitro models. Much of her scientific production is based on the evaluation of the expression profile of aquaporins (AQPs) and the knowledge on stem cells biology with a special attention to the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue. Her current research interests include the design of nanostructured systems useful in the delivery of molecules of biological relevance and the characterization of natural or synthesis compounds in complex natural matrices.
