Project 5



Host institution: University Complutense Madrid


Project Supervisor: Prof Miguel Diaz-Hernandez



I attended a biological/chemical High School institute that gave me the possibility to spend many hours in the laboratory, observing all the “magical reactions” I studied on books. Those years have certainly contributed to choosing a university focus in Biomedical Science, so I select Biomedical Laboratory Techniques at Bologna University.

During my bachelor’s degree, I totally fell in love with science and all the techniques I learned and I discovered my interest in Cell and Molecular Biology. After my graduation with praise in 2014 I moved to Milan University for MSc degree in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine. From November 2016 to April 2017 I started my Thesis Project at Hospital Sacco, Milano. I investigate the presence of angiogenic factors in plasma/serum of VWD patients and the molecular mechanism of VWF-dependent angiogenesis. After this, I had the chance to spend 6 months at Imperial College London for continue my thesis project and there, I finally realized what means doing research. On February 2018 I graduated cum laude in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine and I was selected as ESR 5 for the Marie Curie Network PurinesDX working on Alzheimer Disease.


Why are you doing a PhD?

There isn’t a specific moment of my life that has marked my interest on science. My interest on science was born and has developed through years. I always have been interested in human body and intrigued how the complex and diverse mechanism of human body work together. I believe that pursing a PhD in biomedical science is the only way to go for me. I have never found another opportunity and field to be able to balance both my interest and my passion. I recognize that being a research scientist requires more than a simple desire to contribute to scientific knowledge. I’d like to improve myself and my skill because my learning desire exceed every sacrifice I’ll make.
