This is my personal space on the Citizendium. My name is Giorgio Francesco Gilestro, I was born in Italy 29 years ago. I can define myself as something in between a molecular biologist and a neurobiologist; I have studied Medical Biotechnology at University of Turin, Italy (1996-2001) and then I moved to Vienna, Austria where I obtained a PhD in Molecular Biology studying development of the nervous system in Drosophila Melanogaster (2002-2006). Currently, I devote myself to study Sleep Genetics using Drosophila Melanogaster as model system (yes, flies do sleep indeed!) in the laboratory for research on sleep and consciousness directed by Chiara Cirelli and Giulio Tononi.
Pages I have contributed to
Here some pages I should take care of.
- Cafelamarck.it  is where I write about Science (notice capital S, please), with a special attention to my favourite topics: neuro- and developmental biology, internet related science, sciences of the mind.
- Here  a PDF copy of my scientific CV.
Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started and our help system for other introductory pages. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. Announcements are also available via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon. --Larry Sanger 13:42, 12 December 2006 (CST)
