Pietro De Angeli M.Sc.

Mr. De Angeli received his master’s degree in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Urbino, defending a thesis on “High-throughput mutational profiling of Cas9 endonucleases”. As a part of the European training network StarT, he has conducted his Ph.D. research at the Centre for Ophthalmology, University Hospital Tübingen, focusing on the establishment of “CRISPR/Cas9-based strategies to rescue deep-intronic variants in ABCA4”. His long-term scientific goal is to bring safe and effective therapies to patients with IRDs, therefore, he is now committed to investigate innovative genome editing approaches allowing permanent correction of genetic defects for Usher syndrome and Retinitis pigmentosa.
