Researcher, Ph.D in Systems Physiology. With more than 10 years of experience in cardiac electrophysiology in different laboratories, Dr. Salvarani has dedicated his research activity on the effects of heterocellular electrical coupling between stromal (myofibroblasts) and parenchymal (cardiomyocytes) cells of the heart on emerging electrical properties of cardiac tissue in general and on cardiac arrhythmogenesis in particular. From 2013 he is a researcher at CNR-IRGB and at Humanitas, where he works mainly on cellular electrophysiology in the context of nanomedicine and laminopathies with a focus in the determination of electrophysiological mechanisms of cardiac cells in presence of charged nanoparticles and genetic disorders caused by mutations in genes encoding proteins of the nuclear lamina.
