Paolo Giacobini is a basic scientist focused on neurodevelopmental events leading to the correct maturation and function of the mammalian reproductive axis. Combining mouse genetics, ex vivo manipulations and imaging techniques, Dr. Giacobini's research aims at identifying: i) the molecular mechanisms controlling the specification and migratory routes of GnRH neurons; ii) the nature of GnRH cells interactions with the surrounding tissues as well as their role in the correct targeting to their final destination areas;and iii) how GnRH axons terminals rearrange in the adult brain under the influence of different chemotropic molecules. The combination of interdisciplinary approaches will generate a novel framework of data to understand how the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis connectivity is established during normal and pathological development.
