Andrea Ottolenghi – Full Professor

Research interests : ionizing radiation effects on biological systems – models and simulations – experiment designs – data analysis, relative to: radionuclide transport in atmosphere after nuclear explosions and accidents; dose estimates in organs, short- and long-term effects on humans; cell growth, inactivation, transformation and chromosomal aberrations after in vitro irradiation, and their dependence on radiation characteristics, dose rate etc.; radiation induced DNA damage and repair processes; bystander effects; radiation track structure and transport codes (coupled with anthropomorphic phantoms). Specific attention is now given to: theoretical and experimental basic research on the effects of low doses of ionizing radiation of different qualities (with systems radiation biology approaches); clinic radiobiology for the optimization of radiotherapy treatment plans (risk of complications and secondary tumours).

jacopo

Jacopo Morini – PostDoc fellow

Research interest : ionizing radiation effects on biological systems – study of low and medium dose of ionizing radiation effect – inter-individual radiosensitivity – inflammatory pathways activation and mechanisms leading to different responses to radiation. The research is directed toward: mechanisms which drive the repair of radio-induced damage, considering especially genetic disorders characterized by an enhanced susceptibility for ionizing radiation (e.g. Shwachman-Diamond syndrome) – activation of the inflammatory pathways – dependence of repair mechanisms on different radiation qualities – bystander effect – interplay between tumor and immune system relative to ionizing radiation effects.
