Introduction
Stefania Blasa currently works at the University of Milan-Bicocca under the supervision of Prof. Marzia Lecchi. Her project concerns the use of a remote thermal stimulation as a scalable method to induce neuronal differentiation using a combination of innovative technologies such as nanoparticles and NIR laser. She's also investigating the use of biocompatible substrates for neuronal cell growth. She gained expertise on Electrophysiology techniques such as Patch Clamp, and Cell biology skills.

Preprint
Heating has been recently used as an alternative application to electrical stimulation to modulate excitability and to induce neuritogenesis and the expression of neuronal markers, but a long-term functional differentiation has not been described so far. Here we present the results obtained by a new approach for scalable thermal stimulation on the...

We induced differentiation in F-11 cells to verify if they could show similarities with sensory neurons, in order to develop an alternative to animal models for research studies in the biomedical field.

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) displays overlapping phenotypes with other neurocutaneous diseases such as Legius Syndrome. Here, we present results obtained using a next generation sequencing (NGS) panel including NF1, NF2, SPRED1, SMARCB1, and LZTR1 genes on Ion Torrent. Together with NGS, the Multiplex Ligation-Dependent Probe Amplification Analy...

The isolation and culture of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons cause adaptive changes in the expression and regulation of ion channels, with consequences on neuronal excitability. Considering that not all neurons survive the isolation and that DRG neurons are heterogeneous, it is difficult to find the cellular subtype of interest. For this reason,...
