Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Silvia Bresolin obtained her degree in Medical Biotechnology in 2007 at University of Padova. She obtained her PhD in Medicina dello Sviluppo e Scienze della Programmazione, Indirizzo Immunologia, Ematologia-Oncologia, Genetica in 2012. During her PhD she attended the laboratory of Oncohematology where she focused her research in the advancement of molecular prognostics and diagnostics in pediatric myelodysplastic syndrome and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia. Since 2007 she works in the Laboratory of Pediatric Oncohematology where she focused her research on the molecular characterization and development of an in vitro and in vivo model of myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative diseases. In 2012 she attended the laboratory direct by Prof.

Weiss at Children Hospital of Philadelphia, PA, USA working on the generation and maintenance of leukemia iPS cells. She is member of the Italian AIEOP working group on JMML and MDS and member of the European Working Group of MDS and SAA (EWOG-MDS-SAA).

Her scientific research is also focused on the molecular characterization of leukemia with “omics” technologies at both genomic and transcriptome levels by gene expression profiling and next generation sequencing. She is involved in several national and international collaborations for “omics” data generation and analysis. She is actively involved in projects on the functional characterization of circRNA in MLL rearranged leukemia and on genetic variations predisposing to leukemia in childhood. From 2018, she is Ricercatore Rtda at the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health. She is author of more than 40 publications in peer reviewed international journals.
