Alessia Moruzzi


In 2016, Alessia obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Biomolecular Sciences and Technologies from the University of Trento, after an experimental internship regarding characterization of Transglutaminase-6 mutants found in patients affected by Spinocerebellar Ataxia 35. She then enrolled at the University of Pavia, where she graduated in 2018 with a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics. During the M.Sc. she conducted her Master project on the role of platelets in Alzheimer’s Disease progression. In June 2019, she was awarded with the Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship and joined the Loskill Lab to study cardiac microtissue maturation and functionality in microfluidics devices (Heart on Chip). In her free time, Alessia enjoys gardening and playing board games.
