Giulia Schilardi

PhD. Student

Graduated in Neurobiology at the University of Pavia (Italy), I have a deep interest in Electrophysiology and Biophysics. After an internship at Aarhus University (Denmark), I started my PhD program in the Kleinlogel lab in October 2018. My aim in the lab is to characterize with molecular and electrophysiological techcniques the Bipolar Cells ,retina interneurons reposible of decoding the visual stimuli, in healthy and degenereted retinas. By characterizing bipolar cells in the two conditions we can optimize restorative approaches and improve the functional outputs that use Bipolar cells as final targets for gene therapy.
Outside the lab, I studied piano and singing and recently I enjoy trying different sports, I guess it is the Swiss influence!
