Valentina Perissi holds a Laurea in Molecular Biology from the University of Torino (Italy) and a PhD in Molecular Pathology from UCSD. After postdoctoral training in Epigenetics, Endocrinology and Metabolism in Dr. Geoff Rosenfeld’s HHMI laboratory at UCSD, she established an independent research group at Boston University. This transition was supported by a K99-R00 career development award from NIDDK and a Peter Paul Career Development Professorship from Boston University.

The overarching theme in the Perissi Lab is dissecting the molecular mechanisms that control metabolic adaptation in response to nutrients availability, cell differentiation and oxidative stress.
Current projects focus on two main areas:
1) Mechanisms regulating mitochondria-nuclear communication and genomic regulation of the mitochondrial stress response
2) Role of non-proteolytic K63 ubiquitination in the regulation of metabolic reprogramming.
Ongoing studies investigate these topics in the context of obesity-associated inflammation/insulin resistance and breast cancer.
