Silvia Farcito

PhD, Scientific Assistant

Virtual Population Models

 

Silvia was born in Ivrea, Italy, in July 1983.

 

She received her degree in Biology from the University of Torino, Italy, in 2007.

In 2008, Silvia started work towards her PhD in Neuroscience, which she completed in March 2012. During her PhD studies, she worked both at the University of Torino and Zurich, investigating the role of neurotrophic factors during neuronal development.

Silvia joined the IT’IS Foundation in May 2012 and is currently working on the Virtual Population, IT'IS portfolio of high-resolution anatomical models for computational life science.
