About Roberto Boi

 Researcher at the University of Gothenburg, Department of Neuroscience and Physiology, Njurcentrum, since 2016.

My previous projects in Gothenburg (titles):
Geranylgeranylation of the RhoGTPase protein family in podocytes and its importance for preserving glomerular filter function (ongoing),
Melanocortin-1 receptor in nephrotic syndrome as a target for cytoskeletal stabilization of podocytes (recently published),
ARGHEF7 triggered activation of Rac-1 GTPase causes loss of stressed fibers in podocytes (ongoing),
clinical outcome forecast in patients with idiopathic membrane nephropathy of initial anti- PLA2R antibody levels (ongoing).

Curriculum vitae:

2013-2015: Researcher at the LVR Clinic, Duisburg-Essen University (Germany); PepMIP Marie Curie project. Evaluation and development of next generation separation materials, designed to bind amyloid beta peptides (supposed Alzheimer's disease biomarkers);

2008-2012: PhD in Proteomics, University "Cattolica del Sacro Cuore" in Rome (Italy): Proteomics of saliva and other biological fluids, characterization of post-translational modifications of proteins and glycoproteins, their relevance to oral physiology;
2006-2008: Master's Degree in Experimental and Applied Biology (Cagliari University, Italy);

2003-2006: Bachelor's Degree in Experimental Biology (Cagliari
