Chiara Garrovo has a MSc in molecular biology and a PhD in pharmacology and chemotherapy. She has a strong background in preclinical optical imaging, cell cultures and in vivo animal models. Her current project is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms related to calcium ion channels modulation and ERK1/2 MAPK complex activation in normal and prion-infected cell lines. In particular, she is investigating events that can modulate prions formation and treatments that can have inhibitory effects on it
