ESR 5 - "Fish ω-3 phospholipids to improve NAFLD phenotype"


I am Gabriella Benedetta Sistilli and I come from Roseto degli Abruzzi, a small town on the east coast of Italy.
I got a bachelor degree in Biological Science from the University of Urbino and then a master degree in Health Biology from the University of Bologna with a thesis concerning lipid composition in gluten free biscuits.
During my studies I had the chance to spend one semester as Erasmus student in the Univerisity of Strasbourg, in France.
After my master degree I was selected by Unipharma Graduates project to spend 5 months in the Institute of Research Jacques Monod, in Paris, where I studied the interaction between the two proteins Miro and GBF1.
I have a keen interest in nutrition, I am a sportive girl and like travelling and sunny days.

Summary of ESR Project

This project aims to perform a liver mitochondrial and metabolic analysis in mice fed a high-fat diet supplemented or not with ω-3-containing phospholipids (Krill oil), as compared with their traditionally used forms (triglycerides and ethyl esters).
