Hence, my programme focuses on both “causes” and “solutions”.

Research highlights include:

microRNAs as new therapeutic targets and biomarkers in ischaemic disease

microRNAs are non coding RNAs able to post-transcriptionally inhibit the expression of multiple target genes. For this reason, they can produce profound alteration in the molecular pathways regulating cardiovascular disease and “regeneration”. microRNAs have become extremely popular among ...

I was born in Florence (Tuscany) and studied there to PhD level. I have worked in San Francisco, Ferrara, Rome, Sassari, and Boston before arriving in Bristol in 2005.

I have recently been awarded a  British Heart Foundation (BHF) Chair in Cardiovascular Science at the University of Bristol and I am an honorary Professor at the Imperial College of London.  I am the Bristol coordinator of a BHF centre of Regenerative Medicine, which involves Edinburgh (coordinating centre), Bristol, Glasgow and the KCL.

I am a Fellow of the American Heart Association (FAHA) and part of the editorial boards of Circ ...
