Jonatan Caroli

Role: PhD candidate in Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology
Department: Science, Technology and Society

 
I have a degree in Biotechnology and a master's degree in Advanced Biotechnology from the University of Pavia. During my studies I attended a Structural Biology laboratory. 
My first experience of research was within a AIRC funded project consisting in a structural and biochemical study of the nucleosomal complex formed by LSD2 (homolog of the well-known tumor target LSD1) and its cofactor NPAC.
The thesis work for the master's degree was carried out as part of the SMARTBOX European project organized by a consortium of industries and universities with the aim of developing efficient and robust oxidative biocatalysts to be applied in lignocellulose valorization processes. My task was to solve the crystallographic structures of enzymes to be subjected to an advanced computational platform to predict mutations beneficial for enzyme stability and activity.
