My long-term research interests involve understanding of key developmental pathways and how alterations in gene function or expression contribute to pediatric neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders (NDDs). I completed my medical degree in Italy, where I conducted research on a cohort of pediatric patients affected with NDDs. I have been further expanding on some of these projects during my PhD studies at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, University College London. wqauzu9a_400x400.jpeg PhD Student YIF Inperson attendance and Cultural Dinner (R500) No No Yes YB7365883 Italy

I am broadly interested in the use of research and innovation in the improvement of healthcare. As such, my engineering background is ideal for innovating in healthcare. However, innovating without understanding the underlying cause of the disease has contributed to the failure in the clinical translation of novel drugs. This inspired me to understand the research fields of bioinformatics and pharmacogenomics. I am particularly interested in using computational approaches to understand the genetic factors and pathways underlying diseases to better inform the novel development of drugs. lucy.jpg Msc Student YIF Online attendance and Cultural Dinner (R700) No
