    Francesco Paolo Ruberto

    I am a molecular and cellular biologist who obtained a Ph.D. in cardiovascular science at the University of Lausanne Medical School, in Switzerland in the laboratory of Prof. Thierry Pedrazzini. My work particularly focused on the role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA) in cardiomyocyte proliferation. Applying a variety of techniques, I performed an extensive characterization…

    I was awarded my PhD at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. Under the overarching theme of cardiac regeneration, I studied neonatal cardiomyocytes and developed protocols for their isolation in culture using the explant technique. I also studied adult bone marrow derived stromal cell differentiation and their 3-Dimensional culture using scaffolds.

    I am a cell biologist with a research background in vascular physiology and circulating biomarkers. At Foo lab, I work on profiling the epigenome and transcriptome in patients with peripheral vascular disease and aortopathies to identify disease-related variants that are associated with pathogenesis and disease progression. I believe in the importance of having a growth…
