Maria Teresa Gentile
Dr. Maria Teresa Gentile obtained her master’s degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Naples “Federico II” and PhD degree in Pharmacology from the Second University of Naples. She has worked on projects on cardiovascular risk factors of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and in particular on the molecular mechanisms underlying beta amyloid–induced endothelial dysfunction and its deposition in brain tissues in animal models of essential hypertension. At the moment, her interest is on the mechanisms that control cell proliferation in glioblastoma and melanoma, and possible new therapies obtained from natural compounds. She is performing her research program at the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Pathology of the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli.” She is the author of numerous scientific manuscripts and book chapters.
