Maurizio De Pitta is a Junior Leader fellow by ‘la Caixa’ at BCAM. De Pitta’s research encompasses the full spectrum of Computational Glioscience, with interests spanning from the fundamental biophysics of neuron-glial interactions, both at subcellular and at system levels, to the translational aspects of such interactions, with current emphasis on neurodegenerative disorders and age-related dementia. He supervises two Ph.D. students: Giulio Bonifazi, in collaboration with Carlos Matute and Elena Alberdi at Achucarro – the Basque Center; and Carlos Vivar Rios, at the University of Lausanne, as part of a long-standing collaboration with Andrea Volterra, a leading investigator on astrocyte biology
