Giulia Boezio

Postdoctoral Fellow

Giulia Boezio is a postdoctoral researcher in the Briscoe Lab. She obtained a MSc in Molecular Biology of the Cell from the University of Milan (Italy), with a thesis focusing on zebrafish angiogenesis. For her PhD, Giulia moved to Germany, where she joined the lab of Didier Stainier at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research, in Bad Nauheim.  During her PhD, she studied intercellular and intertissue crosstalk in the context of heart development, using zebrafish as a model system. For her postdoctoral research, Giulia joined James Briscoe’s lab to continue pursuing her interest in developmental biology and tissue formation. In particular, she will focus on understanding the lineage history and the principles of cell fate commitment in the spinal cord at a cellular and molecular resolution.
