Vincenzo Nicolaci

Vincenzo Nicolaci is a Biologist and Industrial Biotechnologist. Over the years he has carried out research both in academic contexts and in companies in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech sectors, focusing on topics mainly related to Biology and Chemistry.

In 2015, at the University of Calabria, he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Toxicology, presenting a thesis project on “Ex-situ Bioremediation Processes for the removal of hydrocarbons in contaminated areas”. He achieved the Master’s Degree in Industrial Biotechnology at the University of Milan-Bicocca in 2018; she carried out part of her thesis at the Danish Cancer Society Research Center in Copenhagen, where she investigated aspects linked to mutations that influence the P53 protein using Computational Biology and Molecular Dynamics and is co-author of an article published in 2021 in the “Journal of Molecular Biology”. He subsequently completed his internship at the Molecular Biology laboratories of the University of Milan Bicocca. In 2019 he obtained the Qualification to Profession as Biologist (Section A) from the University of Pavia.

In 2021, he obtained a Second Level Master’s Degree from the University of Milan in “Process chemistry applied to active pharmaceutical ingredients“. During this period, he studied aspects related to the chemical synthesis of organic compounds and the production of compounds of pharmaceutical interest in bioreactors. In 2021, during the COVID emergency, he managed a Biological Analysis Laboratory on MSC cruise ships, where he dealt with the analysis of biological samples in order to identify people infected with SARS-CoV-2. In 2022 he worked as a Research Fellow at the Institute of Agricultural Biology and Biotechnology of the National Research Council (CNR-IBBA Milan), where he worked on in vitro plant cultures and Genome Editing.

He currently attends the PhD school in Pharmacological and Biomolecular, Experimental and Clinical Sciences at the Laboratory of Pharmacognosy of the Department of Pharmacological and Biomolecular Sciences ‘Rodolfo Paoletti’ of the University of Milan.
