Hardin), carrying out experiments on research projects of common interest and giving seminars and lectures. Since the end of 2010 he established a spin-off company mainly aimed to perform metabolic screenings of biological fluids for prenatal and postnatal diagnosis of IEM, as well as to find evidence of biochemical markers of clinical interests and to develop proper diagnostic kits. He is an author of more than 110 papers (both original articles and reviews) in the field of biochemistry and, mostly, of translational medicine (neurotraumatology, neurology, cardiology, neurodegeneration). He holds 8 patents.
