Role: PhD candidate in Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology
Department: Humanities and Life Sciences


Mirco graduated in Biotechnology at the University of Bologna with an experimental bachelor thesis in Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology about the characterization of the hypothesized biased agonism profile of the potential opioid drug LOR17, a selective agonist of opioid receptor kappa.  In the same University he graduated in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology with and experimental master thesis about the production and characterization – using the gene-editing system CRISPR/Cas9 - of a knock-out cell line for PKMYT1, a kinase involved in the arrest in G2 of the cell cycle and potential drug target against tumor cells.
