Ivan Dimauro è Ricercatore a tempo determinato di tipo B (RTD-B: art. 24 comma 3 lettera b della L. 240/2010, settore concorsuale 05/F1, settore scientifico disciplinare BIO/13) presso il Dipartimento di Scienze Motorie, Umane e della Salute, Università degli Studi di Roma “Foro Italico”, afferente all’Unità di Biologia, Genetica e Biochimica.

I suoi interessi principali mirano a definire i meccanismi molecolari indotti dall’attività fisica che possano garantire quello che molti studiosi definiscono un “healthy aging”. In particolare, la sua ricerca si propone di valutare in situazioni fisiologiche o patologiche l’effetto dell’attività fisica a) sui sistemi anti-ossidanti cellulari ed extracellulari; b) sull’espressione di specifiche proteine da stress come le heat shock proteins (HSPs); c) sui cambiamenti a livello del genoma come la lunghezza dei telomeri, i livelli di metilazione del DNA, l’acetilazone proteica e l’espressione di proteine deputate al controllo della stabilità genomica.

 

Ivan Dimauro is a researcher (RTD-B: Article 24, paragraph 3, letter b of L. 240/2010, SC: 05/F1, SSD BIO/13) at the Department of Motor Science, Humanities And of Health, University of Rome "Foro Italico", in the Department of Biology, Genetics and Biochemistry.

His main interests are to define the molecular mechanisms induced by physical activity that can guarantee what many scientists call "healthy aging." In particular, his research aims to evaluate in physiological or pathological situations the effect of physical activity on a) cellular and extracellular antioxidant systems; B) Expression of specific stress proteins such as heat shock proteins (HSPs); C) genomic changes such as length of telomeres, DNA methylation levels, protein acetylation, and the expression of proteins involved into genomic stability control.
