Elisa received her Bachelor’s degree in Medical Biotechnology and PhD in Molecular and Translational Medicine from the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy, where she studied nanotechnologies to treat and diagnose neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
After spending her postdoc at the prestigious IFOM Foundation in Milan, she decided to enrich her scientific background in the USA, where she studied how neurotransmitters can influence the progression of cardiovascular diseases at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. During this period, she also worked as a consultant for small start-up companies at the PBG Healthcare Consulting, UPenn, Philadelphia.
Elisa has had the honour of presenting her scientific results at national and international conferences, as well as having her papers published on important scientific journals. Her desire to actively improve patient healthcare brought her to join the Angels Initiative with the mission of improving stroke treatment in her country.
