Role at GALVmed

As a Portfolio Manager, I support GALVmed project leaders and programme managers to enable project plan implementation as per agreed milestones and budgets, assisting also with the reporting to the various stakeholders.

Relevant career highlights

I have worked for many years in GSK in Italy, supporting the progression of new medicines through pre-clinical evaluation, having responsibilities as Project Coordinator for Drug Metabolism/Pharmacokinetics and as a team leader.  For the last 14 years, I have also worked in an international contract research organisation with the responsibility of developing and leading a small team of scientists in supporting discovery and pre-clinical candidate evaluation projects for international clients.


I like travelling and exploring new places.  I enjoy scuba diving and photography (sometimes practiced together), world music, running and, of course, cooking.  I am also learning Spanish.
