Fiorella is a Ph.D. student investigating the synergy between PI3K and Bcl-6 during Lymphoma development. She graduated in 2011 from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina with a Biology B.Sc. (sp. Neuroscience). She moved to the UK in 2012, and subsequently worked in the sequencing team at The Genome Analysis Centre (now The Earlham Institute) in Norwich.  In 2014 then moved to Prof. Maxwell’s group at John Innes Institute to work on DNA minicircles and protein binding, before starting her Ph.D in 2015.
