Introduction
Interested in Stem Cell Technology practices in Neuroscience research related to resilience in psychiatric diseases. Experienced in several cell culture, molecular and cellular biology techniques. Currently engaged in a research project using induced-pluripotent stem cell-derived neurons in understanding the underlying mechanisms behind psychiatric diseases.

Chapter
The development of mental disorders constitutes a complex phenomenon driven by unique social, psychological and biological factors such as genetics and epigenetics, throughout an individual's life course. Both environmental and genetic factors have an impact on mental health phenotypes and act simultaneously to induce changes in brain and behavior....
Article
Full-text available
In the last decade, in vitro models has been attracting a great deal of attention for the investigation of a number of mechanisms underlying neurological and mental disorders, including stress-related disorders, for which human brain material has rarely been available. Neuronal cultures have been extensively used to investigate the neurobiological...
Chapter
Genetic variation can only explain a small portion of risk to psychiatric disorders, including major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Epidemiological studies are increasingly showing a link between environmental factors and the development of various psychiatric disorders, mainly mediated by underlying epigene...
Article
Full-text available
The dual-specificity phosphatase (DUSP) family includes a heterogeneous group of protein phosphatases that dephosphorylate both phospho-tyrosine and phospho-serine/phospho-threonine residues within a single substrate. These protein phosphatases have many substrates and modulate diverse neural functions, such as neurogenesis, differentiation, and ap...
Chapter
Over the last years, interest in epigenetic mechanisms has strongly increased in the field of neuroscience. Neuroepigenetics has intensely evolved and now refers to the assessment of a variety of epigenetic marks which can be found across several regions of the healthy or diseased brain. These marks include DNA (hydroxy)methylation, a large diversi...
