Lucia Vitellozzi

Lucia Vitellozzi portrait

Lucia is studying for a  PhD in Organic Chemistry at the University of York (York, UK, Prof. Richard Taylor's group) in cooperation with AnalytiCon Discovery GmbH (Potsdam, Germany). She is working on the synthesis of steroidal natural product analogues as modulators of the Hedgehog/Gli signalling pathway in stem cells, regeneration and cancer. Her project is being carried out within the Healing project (Marie Curie FP7, Initial Training Network).

Her passion for cutting edge research, science communication and, of course, Italy have been perfectly mixed by helping EuroStemCell with translations into Italian.
