Giulia Cardinali

Giulia graduated in Biotechnology at the University of Siena in September 2020 with a thesis on modifications of the expression of cation-chlorine co-transporters in different brain areas in a rat mania model.

Subsequently, she continued her studies at the same university, obtaining a Master’s Degree in Sustainable Industrial Pharmaceutical Biotechnology in October 2022 defending an experimental thesis carried out within the MAD-Lab in Fondazione Toscana Life Sciences under the supervision of Dr. Emanuele Roscioli.

Working on the project “New Delhi metal-beta-lactamase producing (NDM) Klebsiella pneumoniae” she focused on the development of a novel opsonophagocytosis assay to study the phagocytosis-promoting activity of monoclonal antibodies against Klebsiella pneumoniae.

From February 2023, Giulia has a fellowship in the group led by Dr. Rino Rappuoli at Fondazione Toscana Life Sciences (TLS) in Siena where she works in “New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase producing (NDM) Klebsiella pneumoniae” Project.
