Curriculum vitae

Erica graduated with honours in Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Cagliari on October 22th 2019, with an experimental thesis entitled “Synthesis of benzothiazolepyrrolamide-based DNA-Gyrase B inhibitors”. The research of her Master thesis was carried out at the Department of Medicinal Chemistry, at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Ljubljana, under the supervision of Prof. Anamarija Zega and, as Italy-based mentor, Prof. Elias Maccioni.

After her graduation, she won a one-year and a six-months research fellowships at the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Cagliari, whose research projects were respectively focusing on the design, synthesis, purification, and structural characterization of novel multitarget HIV-1 inhibitors and on the development of novel Ebola virus inhibitors restoring the innate interferon immune response, respectively.

She is currently a PhD student in the PhD Program in Life, Environmental and Drug Sciences (Drug Sciences Curriculum), under the supervision of Prof. Elias Maccioni, with a project focused on the identification of new antiviral and anticancer agents.
