I study the molecular mechanisms underlying acetylcholine malfunctioning in neuromuscular, neurodegenerative, anxiety and inflammatory disorders. I focus on non-coding RNAs and microRNA regulators of cholinergic signalling (CholinomiRs) by transcript profiling in cells and tissues from Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease patients and engineered mouse models; and manipulate cholinergic signalling impairments in the brain, blood cells and the intestine, by oligonucleotide-mediated therapeutics.
