Curriculum vitae

FULVIA FARABEGOLI M.D., Ph. D.  was born in Cesena, Italy, on 10th August 1959.

July 1978: took the Scientific School Matriculation and obtained the maximum results.

October 1978 - July 1984: University of Bologna, Medical School. In 1982 became an internal student at the Institute of General Pathology, University of Bologna, in the Laboratory of Electron Microscopy directed by Prof. Massimo Derenzini. On 25th July 1984 she graduated with honours (110/110 e lode) in Medicine discussing a thesis on " The structure of Nucleolar Organizing Regions (NORs) in mammalian cells".

Post-Graduate Research 

 After graduating she continued her research, in the same laboratory, on the structure and function of ribosomal chromatin. In November 1984 Dr. Fulvia Farabegoli was involved in a research project in oncology (Progetto Finalizzato Oncologia, C.N.R.). In October 1985 Dr. Fulvia Farabegoli begun her Dottorato di Ricerca (Ph.D.) at Bologna University, investigating the fine structure of nucleolar ribosomal genes in situ.

On July 1990 she awarded the Doctorate degree discussing a thesis on " Relationship between structure and function of Nucleolar Organizer Regions in mammalian cells".

From December 1989 to September 1992 Dr. Fulvia Farabegoli was recipient of a research fellowship by A.I.R.C. (Milan) for Cancer Research, to investigate the role of argyrophilic proteins associated to ribosomal genes (Ag-NOR proteins) in the proliferation of cancer cells.

June 1991-September 1992: stage in the Neuroblastoma Laboratory of the Kinderklinik, directed by Prof. Fritz Lampert, University of Giessen, Germany. Application of Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) techniques to investigate numerical chromosome aberrations in neuroblastoma and paediatric Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) samples.

1st October 1992: she became Researcher and she has worked in the Experimental Pathology Department of the University of Bologna until 2012, when she changed affiliation. Fulvia Farabegoli is now working at the Pharmacy and Biotechnology Department (FaBiT) of the University of Bologna.

October-December 1994: stage in the Laboratoire d'Oncogenetique, Centre Renè Huguenin, Saint-Cloud, France, directed by Dr. Rosette Lidereau supported by a EMBO fellowship. During this period she has had the opportunity to apply molecular genetic techniques, including Polymerase Chain Reaction-Loss Of Heterozygosity (PCR-LOH), on breast cancer samples.

August-October 2000: stage in the Quantitative Pathology Laboratory of the Department of Pathology, Free University Hospital, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, under the scientific direction of Dr. Paul van Diest, supported by a EMBO short-term fellowship. Comparative Genomic Hybridization was applied to 47 breast carcinoma samples from Italian patients.

March 2015: Master degree in Dietetics and Vegetarian Nutrition (UNIVPM, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy)
