Malosio Maria Luisa
Via Luigi Vanvitelli 32
Maria Luisa Malosio is a cellular and molecular biologist who has developed over the years a strong interest in translational research. To her background belong experiences in neuropharmacology, molecular and cellular biology of topics related to neurosciences, neurosecretion and diabetes.
Born in Milano, Italy, where she obtained her Master in Science, she then continued her training at the ZMBH Institute of the University of Heidelberg (Germany), where she got a PhD in Life Sciences. Back in Italy she first worked at the Medical Pharmacology Institute obtaining a Research Doctorate in Pharmacology, then as a post-doctoral fellow at the San Raffaele Scientific Institute. Afterwards she was visiting scientist at the Glaxo-Wellcome Medicines Research Center (UK). Back to the San Raffaele Scientific Institute she worked as a Telethon post-doctoral grantee contributing to the elucidation of the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing neurosecretory granules formation. Later she became project leader within the San Raffaele Diabetes Research Institute developing an interest for non-invasive imaging applied to pancreatic islets transplantation in animal models and patients and in aptamers as novel tools for molecular imaging and targeting of beta cells. Since 2011 she is staff scientist at the CNR.
