Federica Perrone

Federica graduated in Biotechnology at the University of Perugia in May 2020 with an experimental thesis on the immune modulatory role of exosome derived from amniotic stem cells, in THP-1 cells.
In February 2023 she obtained her master’s degree in medical biotechnologies at the University of Siena, carrying out an internship at the Diagnostic and Molecular Virology Laboratory within the Microbiology and Virology Unit at the AOU Senese. Under the supervision of Professor Maria Grazia Cusi, Federica defended a thesis focused on the immune response evaluation to Measles virus in vaccinated and naturally infected subjects.
Since March 2023, she has joined the “Monoclonal Antibody Discovery” (MAD lab) at the Toscana Life Sciences Foundation, led by Dr. Rino Rappuoli, where Federica is involved in the Covid-19 Project and Monkeypox Project. Subsequently, from November 2023, she started a doctoral fellowship focused on the identification and characterization of human monoclonal antibodies for therapy and vaccine antigen discovery against Monkeypox and other Poxviruses.
