WP2 & WP4-6: Contribution: see Paolo Mulatero


Silvia Monticone earned her MD in 2007 from University of Torino (Italy) and in 2013 she completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the same university.

In 2011, she spent one year as research fellow at Georgia Health Sciences University in the Department of Physiology, where she started a successful collaboration with the laboratory directed by Prof. WE Rainey. She is currently research scientist in Internal Medicine at the University of Torino, Italy; she is also member of the Italian Society of Hypertension since 2008 and in 2012 she won the Italian Hypertension Society fellowship.
