Antonia Manduca is a PhD student in Biology Applied to Human Health at the Department of Biology, Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy. Under the supervision of Dr. Viviana Trezza, she is involved in psychopharmacological research on the role of the endocannabinoid system in the modulation of emotions and cognition.
Dr. Patrizia Campolongo is Assistant Professor at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. The thrust of her research is to investigate the role of the endocannabinoid system in the control of cognition and emotions and to unveil the neural underpinnings of emotional memory processing. She has won several prestigious awards, among them the European Brain and Behavioral Society (EBBS) young investigator award and the “Sapienza Ricerca 2010” young investigator prize, for the six most promising scientists performing fore-front research within the whole University. She is a member of the US Society for Neuroscience (Sfn), the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society (IBNS), the EBBS, the European Behavioural Pharmacology Society (EBPS), the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) and the Italian Society of Pharmacology (SIF).
Dr. Viviana Trezza is Assistant Professor at the Department of Biology of Roma Tre University. Her research focuses on the following topics: 1. the role of endocannabinoid neurotransmission in animal models of cognitive and emotional disorders; 2. neurobiology of social behavior in rats; 3. the developmental neurotoxicity of drugs of abuse and environmental chemicals. Dr. Trezza’s research activity is funded by the EU (Marie Curie Career Reintegration Grant, Seventh Framework Programme People), NWO (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek) and MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research). Viviana Trezza is a member of the US Society for Neuroscience (SfN), the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society (IBNS), the European Brain and Behavioral Society (EBBS), the European Behavioural Pharmacology Society (EBPS), the International Cannabinoid Research Society (ICRS) and the Italian Society of Pharmacology (SIF).
