Federica Marinaro received her BSc in Health Biotechnology and MSc in Medical Biotechnology from the University Federico II of Naples, Italy, and her PhD in Neurobiology of microRNA from the University of Genoa, conducted at the Italian Institute of Technology. During her early career, she worked on brain and nervous system cancers, embryonic cortical development and schizophrenia. After her PhD, she continued her research as a postdoc at the University of Cambridge and University College London working on neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease, leading an international and multidisciplinary project where high technology methods were used to analyse human brain tissues at single nucleus resolution to reveal cell-type vulnerability in early onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Federica recently started her role as Research Informatics Engagement Manager in Alzheimer’s Research UK, offering her expertise to the support of the Early Detection of Neurodegenerative Diseases (EDoN) initiative.
