Ms. Marina Selivanova was born and grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia. Prior to getting her Master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience (2015) at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, she has earned a Diploma with a major in Clinical Psychology at the St. Petersburg State University (2011). In her undergraduate and postgraduate research activities, she addressed the neurobiological basis of mental disorders with behavioural and neuroimaging methods. She believes that the development of new strategies of early biomarker-based diagnostics, would significantly postpone and mitigate the Alzheimer’s disease manifestation, and reduce associated emotional, psychological and financial burden for the affected individuals and their relatives.

Mr. Aronne Bolelli was born in Bologna, Italy on 1990. He received a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Molecular Biotechnology in 2016 from Alma Mater Studiorum A.D. 1088, University of Bologna, Italy. For his undergraduate research, he worked in department of  Specialist, Diagnostics and Sperimental Medicine (DIMES),Bologna, Italy on immunology and cellular senescence  in aging in 2013 and in Cancer Epigenetics and Biology Program (PEBC-IDIBELL),Barcelona, Spain on epigenetic and genetic mechanism involved in cancer diseases  in 2016. During his college career he gained research experience on recombinant DNA technology, gene silencing, epigenetics, steam cells and the most common techniques of cell culture and molecular biology. His fields of interest are particularly focused on study designs and analyses for biomarker research, telomerase activity, gene therapy and telomere shortening associated with human degenerative diseases and aging.
