Curriculum vitae

Brunella Del Re got her Master's Degree cum laude in Biological Sciences from Bologna University.  Then she had a  fellowship from AIRC ( Italian Association for Cancer Research) with a research project on tumor immunology at Institute of Cancerology  (University of Bologna,).  She worked  at Department of Experimental Evolutionary Biology (University of Bologna) where she carried out research on gene expression regulation in response to environmental changes in probiotic bacteria (Lactobacillus e Bifidobacterium). These research projects were supported by CEE and industry grants ( ECLAIR project, Christian-Hansen's Laboratorium, Denmark; AIR project, Unilever, Holland). At the present she is assistant professor in genetics at Department of Pharmacy and Biotechnology  (University of Bologna). Her research interests are centered around mobile genetic  elements (Tn5, Tn10 in bacteria cells; LINE in human cells) with a focus on those factors (cellular, environmental) that could affect their mobility.  Since June  2022  she is a member of the research unit of the University of Bologna  of the GOLIAT project  (5G expOsure, causaL effects, and rIsk perception through citizen engAgemenT) funded by the European Union(HORIZON-HLTH-2021-ENVHLTH-02, Grant Agreement no. 101057262, d In the past she has held the following courses: Laboratory of Applied Genetics (course for MS degree in Conservation and Management of Natural Heritage,  University of Bologna), Immunogenetics, (course for the MS Degree in Health Biology,  University of Bologna), Genetics of microorganisms, (course for the BS Degree in Biotechnology, University of Bologna), Molecular Genetics (course for the BS Degree in Biological Sciences,  University of Bologna), Molecular and evolutive genetics (course for the MS Degree in Biodiversity and Evolution, University of Bologna), Genetics (course for the BS Degree in Natural Sciences).
