Graziella Calugi has excelled in many areas of biochemistry and microbiology during her illustrious 20 year career. Originally, Graziella focused on molecular cytogenetics cancerogenesis for her experimental thesis degree, and she continued working on molecular biology and cytogenetics, at Artemisia Lab, where she flourished and improved upon her molecular skills, simultaneously. Graziella attended the La Sapienza University for an Advanced Professional Degree in Technical Genetics, under Director Professor Gatti. In 1999, she obtained the Advanced Professional Degree in Technical Genetics. From 2002 to 2005, Graziella worked towards her PhD in Laboratory Medicine, then on an advanced professional degree in Microbiology and Virology, at the Tor Vergata Hospital in Rome, where she focused on clinical molecular virology, in particular to HIV full genome sequencing, on long term non Progressor Patients, with the goal to identify, gene deletions or genetic variants which probably could play a crucial ruole in virus assembly. She also worked with molecular techniques in microbiologic clinical diagnosis, in particular with Realtime PCR and end point PCR methods, in order to monitor viral loads and genotype: Herpes Viruses, HIV Viruses, Hepatitis Viruses, Polyoma Viruses, Adenovirus, HPV Virus. During these years, she was also able to set up a wide experiments on cloning methods of PCR products and Plasmids. During her substantial working experience, Graziella had the chance to collaborate with a wide range of students, researchers and medical professors, allowing her to encounter different working methods and many clinical application areas. Currently, she serves as Technical Director of Lab Rocomar USI in Rome. In addition, Graziella is a freelance technical consultant of the Civil Court in Rome, focusing on paternity testing disputes. She speaks English and Italian. In the near future, Graziella will be relocating to UAE to start a new molecular lab.
