Luca graduated in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies at La Sapienza university in Rome (Italy). His master’s thesis was based on the design, chemical synthesis and biological evaluation of new inhibitors of LSD1. This enzyme is an epigenetic target involved in different pathways that led to cancer. During his internship I learned different techniques of  purification, synthesis and evaluation of small compounds.
