From Italy now working at Malcisbo, Switzerland
Francesca studied Biotechnology at the University of Bologna (Italy) and obtained her Master's degree with a major in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology in 2013 after doing her thesis internship at Rutgers University (New Jersey, USA). Now she is interested in vaccine development from a glycobiology prospective. She focuses on the characterization of glycoproteins of the dog’s parasite Dirofilaria immitis, aiming at the identification of a glycoconjugate suitable for the development of a vaccine.
