Giorgia Gandolfi is a computational biologist at the Center for Omics Sciences at IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele, Milano (Italy), where she is involved in the analysis and interpretation of NGS data, with a special focus on cancer genomics.
She earned a BSc in Biology at the University of Parma. There, she has collaborated with the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry to study the cellular localization of a bacterial toxin by employing fluorescent microscopy and image visualization tools. In 2021, she obtained an MSc in Bioinformatics at the University of Bologna, developing her master's dissertation in collaboration with the Finnish Hub for Development and Validation of Integrated Approaches (FHAIVE) headed by Professor Dario Greco at Tampere University (Finland). Her master thesis has focused on developing tissue-specific gene co-expression networks to highlight shared and specific signatures by applying network theory concepts. Then, she participated in a post-graduate internship in the Unit of Microbiology and Diagnostic of Immunology at Bambino Gesu’ Children’s Hospital in Rome, where she has analyzed changes in the molecular interactions between the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant and monoclonal antibodies.
