Giada Di Nunzio


Giada was born and raised in Italy. In 2015 she graduated in Molecular Biology and Genetics at University
of Pavia, Italy, where she spent two years working in the Department of Biology and Biotechnology,
focusing on a project concerning platelet activation in hemostasis and thrombosis. In the last months of her master, she had the possibility to work in the Centre of Cardiovascular Sciences at the University of
Birmingham, UK. In Birmingham, Giada, whose stay was covered by an Erasmus + Traineeship scholarship,
could focus even more on platelet signaling and animal studies. Back in Italy after her Erasmus, she
graduated with the dissertation “Validation of Novel Pyk2 Inhibitors for the Analysis of Platelet Function” and shortly after she decided to move back to Birmingham, where she worked again in the Centre of Cardiovascular Sciences as a research technician for the following two years. Giada is also co-author of three papers, one published with her Italian formal group, the other two submitted and to be published shortly together with her Birmingham group. Giada has now embarked on the Marie Sklodowska Curie Innovative Training Network TREATMENT and, as ESR8, she is going to work at The Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (CNC), in Coimbra, Portugal.
