Dott.ssa Ilaria Tonazzini just got a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship 2017 with her project “NEUROGUIDE” (Study of neuronal sensing and migration/guidance dynamics in neurodevelopmental disorders by nano-engineered chips). Ilaria will develop her project in the laboratory of Prof. Ype Elgersma at the Department of Neuroscience, Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam (NL), and in collaboration with CNRnano and the Neurosens group. The project is focused on the study of neuronal sensing and migration in models of neurodevelopmental disorders, at both system and molecular level, in vivo and in vitro, with a multidisciplinary approach that combines molecular biology, micro/nano-engineered devices and state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopy. A Facebook page (Neuroguide) will be available soon and updated with info and news.
