Elena Agostoni

Elena Agostoni has a BS in Biology and a PhD in Molecular Biology. Her major skills are immunohistochemistry, cellular and molecular biology. She joined the Laboratory of Neurogenomics in 2005. Since then,  she has been working on the molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, focusing on Huntington’s disease, and on the role of retrotransposition in neurodegeneration, maturing strong competences in retrotransposition mechanisms in human and mouse.

Raffaella Calligaris

Raffaella Calligaris has a BS in Biology and a PhD in Molecular Biology. She has always focused in transcription and translational regulation, with more than 20 years of experience. Since 2003 she is working in the Laboratory of Neurogenomics focusing on Parkinson’s disease. Her key interests are in genomics, blood transcriptomics, biomarker discovery, translational research and personalized medicine. She is part of the PARKScreen team that has won the Working Capital National Award (Italian national prize for Innovation in biotechnology) in the 2012.

Marta Codrich

Marta Codrich has a Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology, a Master's degree in Medical Biotechnology and a PhD in Functional and Structural Genomics.
