    Mario Marotta, PhD

    Research Associate

    Mario earned his PhD in Chemistry, specializing in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, from the University of Barcelona (UB), Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Since 2010, Mario has been a Research associate, working in the Pediatric Surgery, Orthopaedics and Bioengineering group (VHIR- Barcelona, Spain), and now at the Center for Cellular & Molecular Fetal Therapy at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

    His focus is the study of neuromuscular diseases and congenital malformations, as well as the development of new cell therapy approaches for their treatment in different animal models with the purpose to further application to the human clinics, especially during fetal intrauterine period.

    Marc Oria, PhD

    Research Associate

    Marc earned his PhD in Biology at the University of Barcelona (Spain) in March 2011, having focused on the study of the neuronal function in different animal models of liver failure. During this research, he developed a new model to assess the motor function using neurophysiology methods where induction and recording of the motor evoked potentials without anesthesia in free moving rats was assessed.

    He has experience in studying spinal cord injury as well functional neurophysiologic tests with knowledge on small and large animal experimentation, biology systems and molecular biology.
