Rossella Cirillo started working in research laboratories in 2009 in the Laboratory of Developmental Psychobiology and Behavioral Genetics in Rome where she participated in a research project to study the genotype-dependent differences in coping strategies.
She then worked in the Laboratory of Medical Pharmacology at Sapienza University (Rome, Italy) to study the c-fos protein expression induced by cocaine and heroin-taking in rat striatal dopamine neurons.
Her PhD experience (2013-2017) took place at the Laboratory of Behavioral Neurophysiology at Sapienza University in Rome where she started to study the role of primate cortical neurons in social interaction, focusing on the brain areas normally involved in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
In 2017 she started to work at the Institut des Sciences Cognitives (ISC) as a Post Doc. The first project concerned the study of social brain’s structures in non-human primates.
Since January 2020 she works in the team of Véronique Sgambato to study behavioral disorders on non-human primates with Parkinson-induced symptoms and the brain structures involved in this neurodegenerative disease.
