Jasmina Zanoncello

I was born in 1987 in Guatemala City, daughter of an Egyptian mother and Italian father. I grew up in Verona (Italy) where I obtained my BA degree and MA degree cum laude from the Faculty of Medicine.
I started my professional path with Prof. Mauro Krampera working on Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cells (MSCs) investigating their immune-modulatory and regenerative properties and their clinical application in Advanced Cell Therapies. During my master’s studies I discovered the world of systems biology, which completely changed my scientific approach leading me to embrace a system-level perspective. For this I accomplished my master’s project at the Laboratory of Cell Trafficking and Signal Transduction of Prof. Carlo Laudanna, where I developed a system biology approach to study the altered phosphoprotein-signalling network of the B-CLL disease.
My scientific interests include the study of molecular mechanisms underlying life’s complexity, with a particular focus on the study of signal transduction and microenvironmental influence.
I am a dynamic person extremely curious about life and I am passionate about everything concerning people’s health, in a more holistic perspective. I am searching for new experiences and realities that can enhance my professional and personal growth.
I recently joined the laboratory of Dr. Mariona Graupera at the IDIBELL (Institut d’Investigació Biomèdica de Bellvitge) in Barcelona with the aim of investigating the PI3K-signalling in oncogenic vascular malformations.
