A new fellowship position as Post-Doc is now opened in the lab of Dr. Feligioni @ EBRI ‘Rita Levi-Montalcini’ Foundation in Rome, Italy (

Feligioni’s laboratory is mainly focused on studying the role of SUMOylation, a post translational protein modification mechanism , in the onset and development of Alzheimer’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Scleroses (ALS), Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.  The laboratory is mainly interested in understanding how SUMOylation influences neurotransmitter release but also protein aggregation and trafficking.

The recruited scientist will work on a project funded by “Regione Lazio – Progetti  di  Gruppi  di ricerca 2020”, in which we will study how the modulation of protein SUMOylation can contrast the synaptic decline in a mice model of Alzheimer disease.
