Short biographical sketch of Prof Massimiliano Agostini

Massimliano Agostini is Associate Professor in Molecular Biology at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. He obtained his PhD in Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology (Perugia, Italy), working on the pharmacological regulation of the immune response. In 2005, he became a Research Assistant at University of Perugia (Italy). In 2007-2014, he worked at the MRC Toxicology Unit, (UK), as PostDoc and then as Senior Investigator. In 2014 worked at TW Mak’s laboratory as visiting scientist (Canada). From 2014 to 2019 Visiting Scientist, MRC Toxicology Unit, Cambridge University, UK. 

MA is mainly interested in the characterization of transgenic mice with genetic alterations in the p53 family genes and their targets to understand their effect on development and cancer. In particular, he aims to investigate the role of the transcription factor ZNF750 (transcriptionally regulated by p63) in tumorogenesis by using in vitro and in vivo models combined with system biology (transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics). Currently, MA is mainly involved on:

1) To identify in-vivo functions of ZNF750 in development, physiology and tumorigenesis by using genetically modified animals.

2) Investigating the role of lipid droplets in physiology and pathophysiology.
