Giada Blandano

Erasmus traineeship intern

Hello! My name is Giada and I have joined the Drost lab with the Erasmus traineeship exchange program. I come from a small town of Northern Italy, and I completed my bachelor and master’s degree in Molecular biology and Genetics at the University of Pavia. During my master’s research internship, at IEO in Milan, I worked on a transcriptional lineage tracing project on triple negative breast cancer and now I’m excited to start this internship at the Prinses Máxima Center. During these months I will use CRISPR screen technique to investigate specific epigenetic driver events in Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors (ATRTs).

Besides, outside research, I love exploring new places, cooking and having movie nights.
