Dr. Sascha Venturelli
Sascha Venturelli received his diploma degree in biology with distinction at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg (Germany) and graduated in medicine at the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen (Germany) with study visits at the University College London Hospitals (Great Britain), the Porter Memorial Hospital (USA) and the University Hospital Zurich (Switzerland). He obtained his Ph.D. in biology at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University Hohenheim (Germany) and his M.D. at the Department of Internal Medicine, University Hospital Tuebingen. Both doctoral degrees were honored with “summa cum laude”. He underwent postdoctoral training at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Melbourne (Australia) in the Gene Regulation Laboratory of Prof. Ricky W. Johnstone. After returning to Germany he established his own interdisciplinary working group at the University Hospital Tuebingen.
His research is focused on the identification and characterization of natural compounds that modify cellular epigenetic regulation and result an altered gene expression. In this context, he is interested in novel inhibitors of histone deacetylases, DNA methyltransferases and substances that induce cellular senescence for the potential use as anticancer drugs.
Dr. Venturelli joined the ERAB Advisory Board in 2015.
