Anna Rocchi graduated in Medical Biotechnologies at the University of Bologna in 2005. From 2005 to 2007 she had a fellowship in Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli, in Bologna studyingmolecular mechanism of CD99 antigen in Ewing sarcoma.
Currently, she is PhD student at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) with a project involving the role of miRNAsin synaptic plasticity
