Welcome to a lunch seminar with Dr. Chiara Manzini, who will be giving a presentation focused on her latest work, on Friday 5 May 2023, at noon.

"Humans and fish to study cellular mechanisms of brain and muscle disorders"


Chiara Manzini, associate professor in Neuroscience and Cell Biology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a Resident at the Child Health Institute of New Jersey, USA


The main goal of Dr. Manzini’s research is to bridge the genetics and mechanisms of disease to identify genes that are essential for human cognition and to define the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders focusing on autism and neuromuscular disorders. The Manzini lab combines human genetics with molecular, cellular, and behavioral approaches in murine and zebrafish models to link human genetics to neuronal cell biology, intracellular signaling, and behavior. Her recent work aims to identify molecular mechanisms that could underlie sex bias in autism and to develop novel precision medicine approaches for congenital neuromuscular disease.
