Congratulations to our post-doc fellow Chiara Nardon for  her interview at the  Wired Next Fest, as young Italian talent engaged in studies on the design of new anticancer targeted therapies.


Our PhD student Giulia Boscutti defended her thesis in front of an International Commission, for the  obtaining of  the title of Doctor Europeus, 9 April 2014.

Congratulations on this significant achievement!!!
