30 NOVEMBER 2022 – 7:00 P.M. – LIVE STREAMING
Research is the engine of scientific progress. Innovation has accelerated this progress and the development of new technologies can contribute to an increasingly sustainable future.
Beatrice Adelizzi, synchronist and researcher, studies new methods to synthesize DNA in a fast, efficient and sustainable way every day.
Beatrice started swimming at an early age, specializing in synchronized swimming. She joined the Italian national team at the age of 14 until qualifying for the doubles at the 2008 Olympics and winning the first Italian synchronized swimming world medal in 2009 in Rome.
Her passion for science led her, in 2010, to further her studies by enrolling in the Faculty of Chemical Science and Technology at the University of Milan-Bicocca and then continuing her studies in the Netherlands and in France. After a postdoc at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris funded by a Marie Curie European project to develop photosensitive and switchable molecules for photo acoustics, Beatrice is now a Project Leader in one of the advanced research teams at DNA Script, a biotechnology start-up in Paris. Beatrice, together with the Inkjet synthesis team, works on synthesizing DNA microarrays via enzymatic methods with the goal of democratizing DNA synthesis in every laboratory using processes that are greener and more sustainable than the classical chemical method.
With her at illimitHER, we will talk about science, chemistry and research, but above all about overcoming personal and professional challenges by going beyond one's limits.
Keep pushing and never stop
