Mitochondrial as a Central Cellular Hub
On Tuesday the 9th of March  2023 at 4.00 pm, Marco Sandri of the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Padua has given a seminar entitled Mitochondria, a Central Cellular Hub. The poster of the seminar is available here


Biographical Sketch
Marco Sandri is the head of the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Padova, one of the Italian departments of eccellence 2023-2027 with a project “Mitochondria, muscle and health: from molecules to humas”. He is a Highly Cited Researcher (Clarivate Analytics) and a group leader at the Venetian Institute of Molecular Medicine, Padova. He is particularly interested in understanding the signaling pathways that control muscle mass with a focus on the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome and autophagy-lysosome systems. He was the first to show a transcriptional-dependent regulation of autophagy and protein breakdown. His research has provided insights into mechanisms of regulation of these proteolytic systems and to metabolic adaptations to physical activity. He is a leading scientist in the field of mitochondrial dynamics and autophagy and their relationship with ageing and physical activity/inactivity.
