Federica Giannini Erasmus Student

I`m an Erasmus traineeship student from Italy and joined the Mogessie lab for a research experience through a an Erasmus scholarship. I obtained my bachelor’s degree at the Universita` Politecninca delle Marche in 2017 and then moved to the Universita degli Studi di Pavia where I recently graduated with a Master’s in Molecular Biology and Genetics. I spent two years in the developmental biology laboratory of the University for my thesis and I gained interest and experience in working with mouse oocytes, investigating asymmetric cell division. In the Mogessie lab, I am applying a wide range of techniques from standard molecular biology methods to advanced microscopy to explore meiosis in mammalian oocytes and eggs.
