The objective of this project is to detect and asses the pathological concentration of specific protein in peripheral fluid samples to obtain novel biomarkers for early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
I am Alessandro Rabbito, from Naples, Italy. I studied Medical Biotechnology at Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, graduated in 2017 summa cum laude. In 2015, with my bachelor thesis work “Caratterizzazione di biomarcatori nello studio dell’acidemia metilmalonica”, I won the prize “Alla ricerca dell’eccellenza” (pursuit of excellence), assigned by AdAstra Foundation. As an undergraduate student I worked in the Endocannabinoid Research Group in Italy for two years. Thanks to this experience I became interested in endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid system. I have also contributed as a co-author of a published paper. Currently my research is focused on indentifying new biomarkers for an early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alessandro Rabbito decided to leave the ImPRESS project on 31.12.2019 due to personal reasons.
