The Tigano Lab
We perform foundational research in the field of mitochondrial disorders and stress signaling. Mitochondria make use of complex signaling pathways to communicate with the nucleus about stress and damage. Aberrant stress signaling can negatively influence the progression of human mitochondrial disorders by fostering tissue degeneration.
I was born in the north of Italy, in the beautiful area of Lake Maggiore. I completed my bachelor and masters studies at University of Parma from 2006 to 2009. I went on and obtained a PhD in Biotechnologies from the same University in 2012.
From 2014 on, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow at NYU Grossmann School of Medicine and Memorial Sloan Kettering Institute in NYC under the mentorship of Dr. Agnel Sfeir.
I joined the MitoCare Institute @Thomas Jefferson Medical School as Assistant Professor in 2021.
