Veronica Krenn graduated cum Laude in Biotechnologies at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy, and received a PhD in Molecular Medicine at the University of Milano, with an internship at the Institute of Experimental Oncology (IEO), working on human mitotic division in the Musacchio laboratory.
She moved to the Max-Planck Insitute of Molecular Physiology in Germany during her PhD and later to the Knoblich laboratory at the Vienna BioCenter as Post-Doc, where she started to work on human brain organoid systems. She joined our department in 2022, after being awarded with the Early Career Fellowship promoted by the Human Technopole.
