Francesca Auciello

I come from Naples, in the South part of Italy, but I graduated in Rome at the second University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, where I gained both my Bachelor and my Master degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology. During my Master I spent one year in a Molecular Genetics lab in which I worked on Tyrosine Phosphatases’ specificity and it was in that period that I realised that research would have been my future.
