Dr. Atzori carried out all her academic studies in Mexico. She graduated in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from UNAM, and She got a Ph. D degree in Molecular Biology from IPICyT. She worked on neurophysiology for over ten years. She studied the functional cross-interactions between Cys-loop ionotropic receptors from the enteric nervous system. She also studied the synaptic transmission rearrangements occurred in the prefrontal cortex induced by stress. Currently, she is interested in learning about the complex and interesting cellular process of senescence, and she will use her professional experience to help her research team at SENS Research Foundation to reach their scientific goals.
