Maria Rosaria Pricolo finished her M.Sc in Medical Biotechnology by the University of Naples “Federico II” in 2012. After that, she obtained a Post-graduate Master’s Degree in “Biotechnology Applied to Assisted Reproduction” at the Second University of Naples. In 2013, Maria Rosaria joined G. Frisso Laboratory in Naples as a Postgraduate student in Clinical Biochemistry. There she got into the analysis of mutations and/or polymorphisms associated or predisposing to cardiomyopathy. Thanks to a predoctoral fellowship, in 2015 Maria Rosaria started her PhD training in the same laboratory, where she is studying the pathogenetic basis of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. In November 2016, she obtained an Erasmus+ Traineeship fellowship for a Cardiovascular Research Experience to work for 6 month at CNIC, collaborating with the Molecular Mechanics of the Cardiovascular System group. Maria Rosaria is currently undergoing her long-term stay for the PhD Project at Molecular Mechanics of the Cardiovascular System group by studying pathogenic mechanism of an unknown mutation of the domain C4 of Myosin Binding Protein C (cMyBPC).
