Project: Unveiling the impact of systemic and hepatic mitochondrial dynamism in the development of dysmetabolic disease

“I would like to express my gratitude for being granted by the EAS. I am thankful to the evaluation committee for giving me this possibility and I am truly delighted for this chance to start creating my own research in the field of Atherosclerosis.

This grant is for me a great opportunity to tight the connection with the EAS society fostering collaboration with young researchers and peers. I hope this project will unravel the intricate connection between mitochondria and lipoprotein metabolism in the development of Atherosclerosis.
