Elvezia Paraboschi graduated in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine at the University of Milan, where she also obtained her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology in 2012. During her post-doc, she spent a year in the lab of Dr. Kathiresan at Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, USA), where she trained on the analysis of high-throughput genomic data, with a specific focus on the analysis of exome-sequencing data in the context of myocardial infarction. She further increased her competence in this field by working as a visiting scientist in 2017 at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, USA, to train on the analysis of genome data. She also completed a second level vocational master in Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics in 2019.
Currently Elvezia is assistant professor at Humanitas University and she works in the lab of Medical Genetics and RNA biology. She is interested in the study of the molecular mechanisms predisposing to complex diseases, with a specific focus on the role of alterations of splicing processes and non-coding RNAs in multiple sclerosis. She was awarded the “Early Career Award” grant by Fondazione Regionale per la Ricerca Biomedica in 2020, which is supporting her research in the field of multiple sclerosis.
