  • The PhD program in Biomolecular Sciences is a research doctorate of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli in Caserta-Naples, Italy. The program is multidisciplinary and based on a well-balanced combination of research activity with access to the most modern technological platforms, theoretical courses, internal seminars and participation to national and international conferences. The official language of the Doctorate program is English. Research and training activities will take place in the Department of Environmental, Biological and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technologies of the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, via Vivaldi, Caserta and in the CNR Institutes of Genetics and Biophysics A. Buzzati-Traverso, Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, and Biostructures and Bioimaging of Napoli. All these institutions provide an international and very stimulating research environment for the students. The students will spend part of their doctorate (at least 3 months) in research groups abroad.

    Your project: “PON2 post-translational modifications “

    The regulation of enzyme activity through single nuclear polymorphisms (SNPs), post-translational modifications (PTM), protein expression and Protein–Protein Interactions (PPI) networks is key to understand complex biological processes such as innate immunity, apoptosis, detoxification and related pathologies. The recent advances in mass spectrometry (MS)-based techniques show promising results for studying many of these aspects. This project aims to study the physiological and pathological role of the human lactonase PON2 in different systems by proteomic approaches based on nano LC- high resolution MS/MS. The expected outcome of the project will provide an integral view of physiologically- and pathologically-relevant effects on regulation of enzyme activity, thus opening novel perspectives for elucidating key players involved in biological processes potentially relevant in several diseases.
