What we do

The fourth edition of Francesca Martini Prize to the Best Poster in Cancer Research was won by Emanuele Monteleone for his poster “STAT3-dependent pluripotency control via the stam-cells specific long non-coding RNA LincS1“. Emanuele graduated from the University of Turin. Here is his C.v.

The Francesca Martini Prize stems from a collaboration between NAnA onlus and SIBBM, the Italian Society of Biophysics and Molecular Biology. An International Jury of Scientists choses the best poster among those exhibited at the Annual SIBBM Seminar.
