TEAM

Research fellow in the group led by Professor Nicasio Mancini at the Microbiology and Virology laboratory of “Vita-Salute” San Raffaele University. Her research is focused on human microbiota, in particular of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract, and its role in different pathologic conditions. For her master’s thesis, she worked on the vaginal microbiota and its correlation to infertility; more recently, she is working on the enteric microbiota in patients undergoing liver transplantation.
Third year PhD student in “Converging Technologies for Biomolecular Systems” at University of Milan-Bicocca; she is interested in neurophysiology and works on in-vitro neuronal differentiation induced by innovative technologies. During her bachelor thesis, she worked on the simultaneous detection of mutations responsable of peripheral nerve system genetic diseases.

Biologist and PhD student in Molecular and Translational Medicine. She works in the field of electrophysiology and neuroscience, but her interests span in many other areas of the life sciences, among which biodiversity and microbiota-host relationships. She collaborates with Monnalisa Bytes Visual Science Magazine, with the information project for healthcare personnel on Covid-19 AIRI-CLIP, with the science communication project on research on Twitch/Youtube Meet Science and with the Facebook page PhD Bioscienze Italia.

Post-doc researcher in the group led by Prof. Nicasio Mancini at the Laboratory of Microbiology and Virology, Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele. He obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine working on microbiota analysis. In particular, he has been involved in several studies that have investigated the role of microbiota in the pathogenesis and the development of different pathologies, such as prostate cancer, non-obstructive idiopathic azoospermia, bladder cancer, Lynch syndrome, multiple sclerosis and multiple myeloma. As a result of these studies, he published several papers on these topics on high impact factor journals.
Recently, he focused on sequencing SARS-CoV-2 virus.

M.Sc. in Medical Biotechnology at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University  of Milan, he then performed his doctoral studies at San Raffaele-Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy under the supervision of Professor Angelo Lombardo.
During this period together with his team he developed a novel strategy of targeted epigenome editing for therapeutic purposes based on transient delivery of Engineered Transcriptional Repressors (Amabile*, Migliara* et al., Cell, 2016).
His research now focuses on the molecular mechanisms of epigenetic silencing and the application of epigenome editing to human diseases.
Beside molecular biology, he has a strong interest in the field of symbiotic relationships between human microbiota and its host, in particular regarding their trans-kingdom mechanisms of communication.

I am a PhD student in the Laboratory of Mucosal Immunology and Microbiota led by Professor Maria Rescigno at Humanitas University, Milan. My research is focused on the evaluation of novel therapeutic strategies of Rifaximin, a poorly absorbed antibiotic, in the context of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. The aim of the project is to shed light on Rifaximin’s ability to confer protection on the intestinal epithelial and endothelial barrier and to understand if its contribution is mediated by the microbiota composition.

I am a Biotechnology student at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. I am going to join the Mucosal Immunology and Microbiota Lab led by Professor Maria Rescigno at Humanitas University to conduct the project for my final thesis.

Even if I am still at the beginning of my scientific career, my curiosity and my passion motivate me to further explore various research topics. What attracts me the most is the functioning of the immune system and in particular its deep relationship with the microbiota that has a fundamental role in its development and modulation.

Benedetta is a PhD student in Molecular and Translational Medicine at the University of Milano-Bicocca. She studies the interferon response in the context of bacterial and viral coinfections. More recently, she has focused on host innate immunity to SARS-CoV-2.
