Eugenio Barone Department of Biochemical Sciences “A. Rossi-Fanelli” Sapienza University of Rome Rome Italy Biography
Biography of Eugenio Barone
Eugenio Barone, is an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Sapienza University of Rome (IT). He graduated in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology in 2006, and obtained a PhD in Neuroscience in 2011. The overarching goal of his laboratory is to clarify the link between defects of neurotrophic signaling (insulin and GLP1) and increased cell oxidative damage during aging and neurodegeneration. He discovered the oxidative-induced impairment of biliverdin reductase-A (BVR-A) protein as an early event accelerating brain insulin resistance development. As BVR-A impairment is antecedent to canonical pathways driving insulin resistance, therefore, it gains interest either as biomarker or as pharmacological target.

Luciana Hannibal Department of General Pediatrics University of Freiburg Freiberg Germany Biography
Biography of Luciana Hannibal
Dr. Luciana Hannibal is a Biochemist at the Laboratory of Metabolism, Medical Center, University of Freiburg, Germany. Her group investigates inherited diseases of metabolism with a strong focus on modifiers and biomarkers of vitamin B12 status. Using cell biology and biophysical methods, the team seeks to elucidate how gene mutations disrupt enzymatic activity, cofactor binding, and redox signaling events that give rise to heterogeneous disease phenotypes. The group employs and develops quantitative mass spectrometry methods to uncover metabolite profiles and biomarkers for diagnosis and monitoring. Dr. Hannibal is a scientific board member of the European Network and Registry for Homocystinurias and Methylation Defects (EHOD).
