On 15th and 16th November, Prof. Alberto Mantovani attended the 10th edition of the world conference “Science...
Researcher Time Determined
I got my PhD in immunology in 2007 (French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM Unit-564, University of Angers, France). From January 2016 are “Assistant Professor” at Humanitas University, Milan, Italy. My activities research focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in innate immunity and inflammation and its role in physiology and pathology (e.g. infections, cancer). my experience and leadership in the neutrophil biology, immunology, dell ‘ immunopathology and cancer can be marked by articles and reviews published in newspapers of the first band (e.g. Cell, Immunity, J Exp Med, Nat Rev Immunol, Blood).
Scientific and Research Interests
His scientific expertise reside primarily in morphological area :
- optical microscopy,
- electron microscopy,
- histological preparations,
- immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence,
- tracers of the nervous system.
Added to these are skills related to the management of laboratory animals, surgical preparation of animals for experimental studies on the nervous system, the electrophysiological techniques and primary and secondary cell cultures.
Main research areas today:
- Studies on the innate immune system with particular reference to the TLR receptors and ILR and pentraxine
- Studies on the development of the nervous system in conditions of activation of the maternal immune system
