From May 2021 she is a junior post-doc in the Infection Dynamics lab at UniMi and INGM. Over the course of the years, Anna has investigated muscle cells regeneration in response to oxidative stress, regulation of the cell cycle in mouse embryonic stem cells, and finally, she landed in investigating cell-to-cell phenotypic variation and persistence in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
When Anna is not in the lab, she can be either at the gym, in the swimming pool, traveling somewhere, or trying to play the violin.
