Stefano Gustincich, a brief CV

Stefano Gustincich obtained his PhD at SISSA, Trieste, Italy, working with Prof. Claudio Schneider on molecular cloning of genes involved in the negative control of cell proliferation. He was awarded a Long-term EMBO fellowship to work as a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory directed by Prof. Elio Raviola at the department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. He developed a transgenic model to study the function of dopaminergic neurons of the retina, a rare neuronal cell type involved in the control of light adaptation. In 1998, he became Instructor in Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School where he developed techniques to study gene expression at single cell level, identifying genes expressed in single dopaminergic neurons. He has been awarded the Harvard-Armenise career development award to join the Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology at SISSA as a principal investigator. Since 2005 he is Associate professor in Physiology at SISSA where he teaches courses in “Molecular Biology of the Cell – Advanced” and “Functional Genomics’
