Fabrizio d'Adda di Fagagna, Ph.D. is a cell and molecular biologist that studies the involvement of the DNA damage response (DDR) pathways in physiologically-relevant processes such as aging and cancer.
Fabrizio studied Biology at the University of Trieste and obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics at SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, in Trieste, Italy, while working at ICGEB (International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology) under the guidance of Mauro Giacca and Arturo Falaschi. read more
We study the physiological consequences of DNA damage at the cellular and organismal level mainly in mammals. Nuclear DNA damage triggers a signaling and effector pathway known as the DNA damage response (DDR) that coordinates cell-cycle arrest (checkpoint functions) and DNA repair. read more about the program
