PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES:

From March 2017 to June 2018: internship at the laboratory of Bio-Inorganic Chemistry, Department of Pharmacy and Biotechnology (FABIT), University of Bologna.

Research topic: structural and biochemical characterization of proteins involved in tumorigenesis and nickel dependent infections. Heterologous expression of target proteins in E. coli strains and their purification through different chromatographic techniques. Circular dichroism experiments, static and dynamic light scattering and NMR spectroscopy to determine the structural properties of the proteins in solution.

From April 2014 to December 2014: internship at the laboratory of Microbiology and Virology  of the "Ospedali Riunuti Papardo-Piemonte" Hospital, Messina.
