Dr. Veronica Begni joined the lab headed by Prof. Riva at the University of Milan in 2014 when she obtained a fellowship for the PhD program in Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology. After achieving her PhD in 2018, she was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship to continue her studies. In 2019, she spent a six-month period in Dr. Korosi’s lab at the University of Amsterdam. One of the main goals of her research is to use preclinical models to unravel the mechanisms of vulnerability to neuropsychiatric disorders following exposure to early life stress, with a particular focus on the transition phase across adolescence. This will eventually allow the identification of novel targets for therapeutic interventions (pharmacological or not) aimed at correcting or preventing the dysfunctions originating from early life stress exposure.
