PhD supervisor: Prof. Giuseppe Legname, Laboratory of Prion Biology

Summary of carrier/studies:

I got my Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology in 2013 and my Master's Degree in Industrial Biotechnologies in 2015 at the University of Padova, where I worked on the recombinant production and biochemical characterization of enzymes to be used in industrial processes. I am currently working on the molecular mechanisms involved in the spreading of pathological aggregates of synuclein and tau proteins in cultured cells.
