Identification, evaluation and validation of diagnostic and prognostic markers of inflammatory, infectious, degenerative and neoplastic diseases of domestic animals.


Scientific reference person of the ongoing project "Study of the somatic and germinal mutations of the Ataxia-Telangiectasia mutated (ATM) gene in the boxer breed in relationships with the risk of cancer as a spontaneous animal model of cancer predisposition in humans". The project has been funded by "Fondazione del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna. Preliminary results have been presented at: The conference of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG 2008) July 20-24, 2008, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Turba ME, Gentilini F, Forni M, Cinotti S (2008) Sequencing of full-length 5' end of canine Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated cDNA and characterization of the promoter region.
