Eugenio Barone

Eugenio Barone is a post-doc fellow under the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) at the Department of Biochemical Sciences “A. Rossi Fanelli” of Sapienza University of Rome. His primary field of interest is Neuroscience and in particular the role of the heme oxygenase/biliverdin reductase (HO/BVR) system in the regulation of the cell stress response in the pathogenesis of free radical-related diseases, with special emphasis on the central nervous system and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer disease. Other research topics are (i) the role of dietary antioxidant and their use as potential therapeutic agents for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative disease, (ii) design and synthesis of new drug delivery systems such as nanoparticles, and (iii) neurobiology of gamma-secretase; which is one of the main proteins involved in the onset and progression of Alzheimer disease.
