Dr. Giovanni Nardo, obtained his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Parma (Italy). During this period, he focused on the molecular diagnostics of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Subsequently, he moved in the United Kingdom as a postdoc at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SiTRAN) where he was involved in the characterization of ALS pathogenesis in transgenic mouse models. After two years, he became principal investigator at the Mario Negri Institute in Milan by obtaining a two years grant from the Thierry Latran Foundation. Actually, he’s working as a senior researcher at the Mario Negri Institute where he investigate the correlation between the inflammation and ALS.
Dr. Giovanni Nardo focused his research on ALS mouse models and the molecular mechanisms underlying the disease. The main goal of his research is to identify promising molecular targets for the treatment of patients.
