Academic Education and Training November 2003, MSc in Industrial Biotechnologies at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences (Design and synthesis of new potential Ras inhibitors derived from carbohydrates, Mentor Prof. F. Nicotra) – final grade: 110/110 magna cum laude January 2007, PhD in Chemistry at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences (Development of new potential antitumor drugs based on Ras protein inhibition, Mentor Prof. F. Nicotra) 2005, stage with Prof. J. Jimenez-Barbero (CIB-CSIC, Madrid, Spain) 2006, stage with Prof. H. Molinari (University of Verona). Employment and Research Experiences Cristina received the degree in Industrial Biotechnology discussing an experimental thesis on the design and synthesis of bioactive compounds. She further deepened her scientific knowledge and skills attending a PhD course in Chemistry. During this period, she had the opportunity to complement the synthetic work with the NMR characterization of the interaction between the potential inhibitors she had prepared and the target protein. To this purpose, she reached a European leader group in carbohydrate-protein interaction studies (Prof. J. Jimenez-Barbero’s group, CIB, CSIC, Madrid). Having acquired such new skills, she moved to this new research field, contributing in a fundamental way to the creation and development of a new bio-NMR laboratory at the Dept. of Biotechnology and Biosciences, University of Milano-Bicocca. Now she is responsible for the scientific activity of this lab and for the maintenances of the equipment. From October 1st 2012 she is Assistant Professor of Organic Chemistry at Milano-Bicocca University, Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences. To date, she is author of 55 papers on international journals, 5 scientific book chapters, 3 patents, 1 report concerning the ICSU Symposium “Global Scientific Challenges: Perspectives from Young Scientists”, attended as IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) representative, and about 120 communications in national and international meetings, among which among which 15 selected oral communications and 5 invited lecture. She is first author in 19 papers and corresponding author of 14.
