Research engineer Chiara Guerrera has developed an intelligent and high-performance proteomics analysis platform. Thanks to her work, complex technologies are becoming accessible to academic researchers.
Guerrera is responsible for the university proteomics platform of the Necker federative research structure*. A specialist in proteins analysis, she threw herself into creating a very high level platform. In parallel to the services offered to the research teams, Guerrera performs technological research: if the resources available are inadequate in responding to the researchers’ questions, she develops a new strategy!
Her team is particularly specialized in the study of extracellular nanovesicles, which all cells secrete. Their research has, for example, led to the identification of prognostic markers of cystinuria – a rare genetic kidney disease, or that of predictive markers of treatment response in patients with cystic fibrosis.
