About Matteo Dal Ben
I obtained my MSc in Medical Biotechnology at the University of Trieste (Italy), working on drug treatment of hepatocarcinoma cell line and studding chemical and biological properties of antimicrobial peptides. During my Ph.D and Post-Doc at the University of Trieste (Italy) I have acquired experience in neuroscience by developing organotypic brain cultures to study bilirubin-induced toxicity in the brain and the possible neuroprotective properties of low level of bilirubin in Parkinson’s disease. Now, as a Post-Doc at the Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic), I’m involved in the study of bilirubin photoisomers.
