I started my career in science at the University of Milan with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Industrial Biotechnology. Subsequently, I moved to Canada where I started my journey in neuroscience at Université Laval in Quebec, completing my PhD. Although I had the opportunity to work on several projects, my primary focus was on cell replacement strategies for Huntington’s disease. After my PhD, I became a lab manager in the same research center where I conducted my doctoral studies. Of late, I moved to Toronto and after a brief period at the no-profit organization Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada as research specialist, I went back to the bench to follow my passion for research as postdoctoral researcher.
Outside the work setting, I love hiking, skiing, yoga and reading a good book.
