Mario Capasso works as a Researcher in medical genetics at the School of Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy. He received his M.S. degree in biotechnology and a Ph.D. degree in molecular medicine from University of Naples Federico II. He has been interesting in studying the genetics of complex diseases. In 2007 he joined the Department of Human Genetics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pa, USA, where he investigated genetic susceptibility to neuroblastoma by means of genomewide association studies. In 2009 he moved back to University of Naples Federico II. Currently, he is studying genetic bases of neuroblastoma by using different approaches such as genomewide association studies, next generation sequencing, and gene expression profile.
