We sincerely welcome Prof. Dr. Fabrizio Stasolla, from "Giustino Fortunato" University of Benevento, Italy, to join the Editorial Board of OBM Genetics. Prof. Stasolla is an Associate Professor of Developmental Psychology at “Giustino Fortunato” University of Benevento (Italy). His interests deal with assistive technology-based programs and rehabilitative interventions to promote an active role, independence, and self-determination in individuals with neurological disorders and severe to profound and multiple disabilities. Additionally, he is interested in aided-alternative and augmentative communication strategies to support communication skills in non-verbal individuals. Recently, he fits virtual reality setups, new and wearable technologies, a. nd telerehabilitation for both assessment and recovery purposes in persons with neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. Furthermore, patients with acquired brain injuries either in a vegetative state, in a minimally conscious state or emerging/emerged from it are usually targeted along his research’ interests. Children with attention deficits hyperactivity disorders, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, rare genetic diseases, Alzheimer or Parkinson diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or lateral sclerosis are finally included. On that specific topic, he authored several international papers published in peer-reviewed Journals. He also edited “Understanding Children with Cerebral Palsy” (NOVA Publisher, 2020), Rett Syndrome: from diagnosis to treatment (NOVA Publisher, 2021, Fragile X syndrome: from Diagnosis to Treatment (NOVA Publisher, 2022), and recently edited a new IGI Global volume entitled “Assistive Technologies for assessment and recovery of neurological impairments”. Recently he is a Principal Investigator in different projects on new technologies mediated by augmented, virtual, and extended realities, serious games, and telerehabilitation. Finally, he is an Associate Editor for Technologies (MDPI Journals), and Frontiers in Psychology (Neuropsychology Section). Currently, he is in the process of editing a new article collection (as Guest Editor) on the Integration of the Technology in Clinical Settings for Frontiers in Psychology, Section of Psychology in Clinical Settings, and on An Interdisciplinary Approach Towards a Greater Understanding of the Quality of Life in Chronic Mental Illness for Frontiers in Psychiatry, Section of Social Psychiatric and Psychiatric Rehabilitation.. We appreciate Prof. Stasolla for his participation and support.
We sincerely welcome Dr. Masahiro Sato, from National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD), Japan, to join the Editorial Board of OBM Genetics. He obtained his PhD in Biochemistry from the Kagoshima University School of Medicine, and later spent ten years at the Laboratory for Pathobiology, Pharma Research Laboratories, Hoechst Japan Ltd. (Kawagoe, Saitama, Japan), where he produced disease mouse models for Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. In April 1996 - March 2006, he spent at the Department of Molecular Life Science, Tokai University School of Medicine (Isehara, Kanagawa, Japan) as Professor (Assistant), where he engaged in developing novel technologies, as exemplified by cell-lineage analysis in mammals using Cre-loxP system and testis-mediated gene transfer (TMGT), a technique without using microinjection-based transgenesis. In April 2006 - March 2021, he spent at the Gene Expression Regulation Section, Frontier Science Research Center, Kagoshima University (Kagoshima, Japan) as Professor, where he engaged in developing novel technologies related to reproduction and molecular biology as well as producing genetically modified piglets suitable for xenotransplantation. Notably, during these periods, he and his colleague Prof. Masato Ohtsuka (Tokai University School of Medicine) succeeded in developing i-GONAD, a novel method for creating genome-edited animals through in vivo genome editing. In April 2021 – Present, he is studying reproduction engineering-related research at NCCHD as Senior Fellow. We appreciate Dr. Masahiro Sato for his participation and support.
