Zebrafish Lab – Carnovali, Marta


Marta Carnovali received a Master’s Degree in Biology Applied to Biomedical Research from the Università degli Studi dell’Insubria, Varese, Italy, in 2013. Since 2014 she is working as junior scientist in the Zebrafish Laboratory. She is involved in several research projects focused in bone remodeling studies performed on embryo and adult zebrafish. Her work focus on pathogenic and therapeutic studies of human bone disorders, the research of new pharmacological compounds or phytotherapeutic molecules with effects on bone metabolism through drug screening and the creation of innovative non-invasive systems to monitor in vivo bone remodeling.
