Ferdinando Di Cunto
Ferdinando Di Cunto is Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Torino. He is member of the Italian Society of Biophysics and Molecular Biology (SIBBM), of the Italian Society of Neuroscience (SINS), of the Italian Soceity of Biochemistry (SIB), of the Italian Society of Bioinformatics (BITS), and of the American Society of Cell Biology (ASCB). Since many years he has developed his research activity in both the experimental and computational biology fields.
In the first field, he has been mainly studying the role of cytoskeletal control pathways in the proliferation and in the differentiation of mammalian neuronal precursors, with a specific focus on the involvement of these mechanisms in microcephaly. In the second field, he has concentrated on the development of computational methods for integrative genomics and systems biology.
