Stefania Del Prete

Position:

Postdoc

Stefania was born in Naples and grew up in the North of Italy. She graduated in Molecular Biology at the University of Padova and then moved to Paris after she was awarded a Lifelong Learning Programme scholarship. She obtained a joint doctorate degree from the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Amsterdam. During her PhD, funded by a Marie Curie fellowship, she focused on understanding gene regulation at the transcriptional and chromatin level in Arabidopsis. She did a first short postdoc at the Wellcome Trust Centre in Edinburgh, unravelling how bivalent chromatin domains, orchestrate the timely activation of genes in mouse embryonic stem cells. Her scientific interests are in the regulation of gene expression by chromatin proteins, impacting different levels of chromatin organization. She is known to invent new words mixing up the different languages she pretends to speak. She is also a foodie and she loves to punch in the air.
