Ramesh Chandra  

Research Interest:

Dr. Ramesh Chandra research interests focus on the neuropsychiatric disorders like cocaine addiction and social defeat stress. Current research project broadly investigates the cell type specific transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms in the two Nucleus Accumbens (NAc) projection Medium Spiny Neuron (MSN), those enriched in dopamine D1 vs. D2 receptors, due to their critical but antagonizing roles in cocaine abuse. He is using molecular approaches to manipulate gene expression in the two NAc projection neurons to determine their role in cocaine-mediated behaviors and social interaction.

  • Human neurological diseases. Modeling of human psychiatric diseases (schizophrenia, cocaine addiction) using induced Pluripotent Stem Sell (iPSC)-derived neurons. Generation of iPSCs from fibroblasts, generation of different types of neurons including GABAergic neurons, dopaminergic neurons, glutamatergic neurons from iPSCs and human embryonic stem cells.
  • Drug abuse.Cocaine addiction and synaptic plasticity in the brain.Using transgenic mice as a model of human cocaine addiction.

Valentina Gallo  

Research Interest:

Dr. Valentina Gallo research focus on Neuroepidemiology (mainly Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Parkinson's disease); environmental, molecular, and social epidemiology.
Valentina is mainly interested in investigating environmental determinants of neurological diseases (dementia, Parkinson's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, and others), and their interaction with other risk factors and genetic predisposition.
She is also interested in exploring the value of using biomarkers in epidemiological research, and in the theoretical work behind molecular epidemiological studies.
Finally, Valentina is also interested in contributing to the understanding of social determinants of health and diseases.
