Arianna studied Biology in Rome, at the University of Roma Tor Vergata where she got her Bachelor’s degree as well as her Master’s Degree in Medical Biotechnology. During the master’s thesis she was enrolled in the National Council Research of Roma Tor Vergata where she studied the role of the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway in the colon-rectal cancer and Parkinson’s disease. After that, she joined the Prion laboratory headed by Professor Giuseppe Legname at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Trieste, where she received her PhD in Molecular Biology in January 2021. She studied the involvement of a serine protease inhibitor, called SerpinA3n, in the establishment and progression of prion diseases. In March 2021 Arianna joined Consiglio’s Lab to study the structure and conformation of alpha-synuclein in iPSC-derived dopaminergic neurons from Parkinson’ patients.
