Curriculum

Dr. Signoretto has collaborated on the study of vital but non-cultivable bacterial forms (VBNC)
For about ten years she has been involved in microbiology of the oral cavity and in particular the action of substances of natural origin (polyphenols), contained in drinks / foods of daily consumption in the process adhesion of bacteria responsible for caries and periodontal disease. These studies allowed her to participate in the NUTRIDENT Project funded by the European Community (FP6, No. 036210).  Currently she is carrying out studies on the role of human and environmental reservoirs of bacteria able to colonize the lower respiratory tract of patients with cystic fibrosis (project funded by the Fibrosis Cystic Foundation).
