Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry (ICB)

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.

Skeletal muscles are the vastest tissue in the human body with an essential role in maintaining posture, moving, and regulating internal body temperature and metabolism. Consequently, skeletal muscle injuries or diseases can have a profound effect on one’s life. In Advances in Skeletal Muscle Health and Disease, Fabio Arturo Iannotti has assembled contributions from international experts to provide a conclusive guide to what continues to be a rapidly developing research field. After a short introductory chapter, the book continues by looking at the biochemical, genetic, and molecular elements and mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle health and disease.
