In 2013 I obtained my Bachelor Degree in Biotechnology (Università degli Studi di Perugia) discussing the thesis carried out at the Jozef Stefan Institute (Ljubljana SL), where I analyzed the impact of a site-specific mutation on Stefin B protein. Then, I continued my study attending the Master in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (Università degli Studi di Perugia) and completed it in 2015 with an experimental work on the effects of the expression of the protein S100B on human satellite cells and C2C12 unders oxidative stress. Before start my PhD in the laborarory of Individualité Microbienne et Infection I won a 9 months Erasmus Traneeship + scholarship at the katholieke universiteit of Leuven (KUL) in the Stem Cells Institute. There I had the possibility to analyse the effects of the Wnt pathway on the regulation of the cells cycle of mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs).
I currently am doing my PhD, in the laboratory directed by Giulia Manina, analyzing the effects of the phenotypic heterogeneity on Mycobacterium tuberculosis and its probably implication in the persistence of the pathogens inside the host.
