Summary of career/studies:

I obtained my both my bachelor and master degree in biotechnology at University of Trieste. During my internship I worked in a molecular medicine laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Rocco Barazzoni at Cattinara hospital. My project was focused on assessing the impact of acute injection of unacylated ghrelin in a rodent model of chronic kidney disease. After my master degree I worked as an intern at the company Genialis d.o.o.
