I am a PhD student working in Dr. Teresa Pellegrino‘s group ‘Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications’ at IIT, Genoa. My research activity focuses on the evaluation of multimodal therapeutic effects of inorganic nanoparticles as drug delivery systems, heat mediators and tumor targeting in 2D and 3D in vitro and in vivo tumor studies.
2019- PhD student at the Nanomaterials for Biomedical Application group, in collaboration between Italian Institute of Technology and University of Genoa, Italy
2018-2019 Research fellow at Giannina Gaslini Hospital working at Autoinflammatory disease and Immunodeficiencies laboratory, in Marco Gattorno’s group, Genoa, Italy
2017-2018 Master thesis at University College of London in Paolo de Coppi’s group “Stem cells and Regenerative Medicine”, London, UK
2015-2018 Master degree in Biomedical Engineering – Biomechanics and Biomaterials at Polytechnic of Milan, Italy
2012-2015 Bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering at Polytechnic of Milan, Italy
I am a biomedical engineer, who has developed strong skills also in biology thanks to the experience acquired during the master thesis and the year spent at Istituto Giannina Gaslini (Genoa, Italy). I have a deep knowledge on stem cells, histological analysis and strong skills in molecular biology applied in immunology.
