Andrea is a Hematology resident from Milan University. As soon as he began medical school, Andrea felt that being a clinician has a major effect in the Biomedical research field and the questions he wanted to study.
During the intense spring of 2020, he worked as a volunteer MD in the COVID-19 unit at the Hospital of Bergamo, one of the major COVID-19 hotspots at the start of the pandemic.
This led to the opportunity to complete his residency in Bergamo under the guidance of Professor Rambaldi, where he spent more than a year working in the field of bone marrow transplant and cellular therapy— being his primary interests in Hematology.
He has deep interest in Science and in translational research interweave with passion for clinical work and teaching. Although, these areas profoundly influence one another, It is almost impossible to pursue all simultaneously. He does however think that each can be pursued in succession, which is why he is now committed to focusing on the next phase of his career undergoing translational science.
The reason he’s joining Genovese Lab is to exploit the new genome editing technologies allowing him as a future physician scientist—one who still harbors his childhood dream of changing the world— to develop new therapeutic strategies for curing Hematological diseases.
