Linking obesity and chronobiology - initiation visit
Elena Gangitano, Sapienza University of Rome
I am an early-carrier clinical scientist, doing my PhD in Sapienza University of Rome. My research focus is on metabolic diseases, and I am particularly interested in studying the relationship between circadian rhythm and obesity.
Professor David Ray, of the University of Oxford, is a leading expert on chronobiology. The Bioscientifica Trust's support would provide me with the opportunity to visit him and his laboratory and establish networking connection and long-term international collaborations.
Moreover, I will gain experience on specific laboratory techniques for the study of circadian rhythm.
