I joined Mike Fainzilber’s lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science in November 2016 as a doctoral student. I studied molecular biology at University of Pisa, in Italy. During my Master thesis, I worked under the supervision of Prof. Antonino Cattaneo, at the NEST Lab (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa), studying the specific endocytic pathways exploited by the neurotrophin NGF and its precursor form, proNGF. Currently I am studying the role of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) on the cell size sensing mechanism. Moreover, I am working on the regenerative potential of primary sensory neurons in response to different type of injury.
