Valeria Rossella is a cellular and molecular biologist who graduated in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Pavia. She performed her undergraduate internship at the Biochemistry Department, University of Pavia, where she was involved in a basic research project dealing with the investigation of the red blood cell membrane structure. Her research thesis significantly contributed to a scientific publication.

She has great experience in different library preparation techniques, in the field of genomics, and she has contributed to the publication of various scientific works in the field of translational oncology.

She is experienced in bone marrow, umbilical cord and adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells. Indeed, she worked at San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy (SR-TIGET) contributing to the identification of impairment in the hematopoietic supportive capacity of the bone marrow stromal compartment of β-thalassemia patients enrolled for gene therapy. She was also involved in the identification of an early senescence state and a pro-inflammatory program activation in aged human mesenchymal stromal cells.

Then, she moved to Swiss Stem Cells Biotech (Switzerland) where she improved her previous experience on mesenchymal stromal cells managing the biotech quality control laboratory and contributing to the writing of a review regarding the use of umbilical cord mesenchymal stromal cells and their secretome in the therapy of arthritic diseases.

She has latterly joined the Center for Omics Sciences where she is working as a research technician giving her contribution in several projects of the Center, in collaboration with a well-established pharmaceutical company. Specifically, she is involved in the development of the single-cell sequencing workflow.
