Professor of Physiology, degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Pisa and PhD in Neurobiology at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, prof. Yuri Bozzi has been working at the University of Trento since 2009 and had research experiences with national and international institutions (such as the Institut de génétique et de biologie moléculaire et cellulaire in Strasbourg), he is a member of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and the International Brain Research Organization and participates in various scientific consortia. For the University of Trento he was also chairman of the Committee for the recruitment and development of careers.
In the scientific field, prof. Bozzi has been coordinator of TRAIN (Trentino Autism Initiative). This strategic project of the University of Trento has deepened the biological mechanisms underlying the different behavioural manifestations typical of autism spectrum disorders.
In addition to autism, Prof. Bozzi deals with epilepsy, brain disorders and developmental problems. His approach is that of physiology and anatomy, and aims to shed light on molecular mechanisms to improve, in perspective, the treatment of different disorders.
