Fabio Arturo Iannotti
Dr. Fabio Arturo Iannotti received his master’s degree in Medical Biotechnology at the University Federico II, Italy in 2006. In 2010, Dr. Iannotti graduated with a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. During this time, he discovered the pro-differentiation and protective role of voltage-gated Kv7 K+ channels in skeletal muscle cells. Part of this research was carried out at the University of California-Davis, USA (2009–2010). In 2011, he began his postdoc at the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry (ICB)/(CNR), initiating pioneering studies on the role of the endocannabinoid system as well as plant-derived cannabinoids in skeletal muscle disorders. In 2012–2013, he was invited as visiting researcher at the University of Reading, UK. In 2014, he became a permanent researcher at the ICB.
