Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Benedetta Accordi graduated in 2002 in Biological Sciences at the University of Padova. In 2006 she received her PhD in “Biologia dello Sviluppo e Scienze della Programmazione”. During her PhD she attended the Laboratory of Pediatric Oncohematology, University of Padova, where she focused her research on the molecular biology of pediatric B-ALL.

In 2005-2006 she attended the Laboratory headed by Dr. LA Liotta and Dr. E. Petricoin III at the Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine at George Mason University (Manassas, VA, USA), where she was trained on the Reverse Phase Protein Arrays technique. She worked on the phosphoproteomic profiling of pediatric B-ALL supported by a grant from the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (Rome, Italy).

From October 2006 she is working at the Laboratory of Pediatric Oncohematology, University of Padova and Istituto di Ricerca Pediatrica Città della Speranza, where she set up the Phosphoproteomics facility. Her research topic focuses on phosphoproteomic profiling of pediatric leukemias, and she is involved in several national and international collaborations focused on the phosphoproteomic profiling of neoplastic and non neoplastic pediatric and adult diseases.
