Francesca Conserva


Francesca Conserva completed her education in biomedicine at the University of Ferrara, where she graduated in 2009. During her master studies, she joined a collaboration with Karolinska Institute working on the metabolism and function of nucleosides, nucleotides and nucleoside analogs, exploring their potential as therapeutic targets. As a graduate student, she continued her research training at Karolinska Institute, working on the molecular characterization of novel p53-based cancer therapy.She received her Ph.D. in Biotechnologies Applied to Tissue and Organ Transplants at the University of Bari in 2014 studying the molecular mechanisms of Diabetic Nephropathy using a systems biology approach and developing extensive expertise on mRNA profiling in tissues and biofluids. She continued her post-doc research at the Maugeri Scientific Institute (Cassano) where she explored the potential of mRNA profiling in Heart Failure. She is highly interested in the use of integrated approaches for the discovery of molecular biomarkers of disease.

Research Interests:

Her research interest mainly focuses on Genomics, Systems Biology, mRNAs function and profiling, Computational Biology, Genetics, Transcriptomics, Molecular Biomarker Signature.
