Eleonora Guagadnin, Ph.D. | Postdoctoral Fellow
Eleonora received her B.S. M.Sc. in Medical Biotechnologies from the University of Padova in Italy. She then interned in Dr. Marco Sandri’s lab at the Venetian Institute for Molecular Medicine in Padova, where she studied the role of mitochondrial remodeling in skeletal muscle atrophy. She then joined the laboratory of Dr. Yi-Wen Chen at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where she studied the effects of TGFβ1 on skeletal muscle mass. She received her Ph.D. in Veterinary Sciences from the University of Padova under the mentorship of Dr. Carsten Bonnemann at the National Institutes of Health where she studied the transcriptional events responsible for onset and progression of Collagen type VI-related muscular dystrophy. Currently, she is focused on uncovering the roles of lncRNAs in the regulation of myogenesis and hypertrophic growth.
