By Alice Valagussa

Please, find here my end-of-fellowship report regarding the ESID Short-term fellowship I completed at the Università degli Studi di Milano - Italia, under the supervision of Dr. Sven Kracker and Dr. Monica Beltrame. 

Currently, I am carrying out my doctorate at the Imagine Institute – Paris, financed by the “Hematology Oncology and Biotherapies” doctoral school and under the supervision of Dr. Sven KRACKER. I am part of the Human Lymphohematopoiesis Laboratory directed by Dr. Isabelle ANDRE, collaborating closely with the Biotherapy department headed by Pr. Marina CAVAZANNA. This already allows me to reach my short-term goal: being part of an excellent laboratory, surrounded by researchers available to share their knowledge and critical opinion. 

In addition, thanks to the established collaboration with the Dipartimento di Bioscienze, Università degli studi di Milano, I acquired the expertise to work on zebrafish and as such novel laboratory techniques. Working in the same laboratory that established the morpholino based usb1-deficient zebrafish model I am currently using for experiments, allowed me to be directly in contact with people who have a long-standing expertise in this field.
