Daniele Braga graduated in “Biotechnology for Industry and Environment” at University of Milan in 2010. As post-graduate, under the supervision of Cristina Barlassina he specialized in the application of microarrays and Next Generation Sequencing to the study of Single Nucleotide Polimorphisms and Gene Expression in biomedical research projects.
In 2014 he enrolled in the doctorate course in “Molecular and Translational Medicine” at University of Milan and his project focused on the identification of molecular signatures of survival and response to therapy in septic and cardiogenic shock. During the PhD he specialized in the execution of transcriptomic experiments working both at the bench and performing bioinformatic data analysis. In 2016 he was a visiting PhD student at Earlham Institute (Norwich – UK) in Simon Moxon Group where he received training in bioinformatic analysis of microRNAs.
In 2019 he joined the Laboratory of Mucosal Immunology and Microbiota at Humanitas Research Hospital, where he mainly works on the bioinformatic analysis of the microbiota, under the supervision of Prof. Maria Rescigno. His occupation consists of a collaborative work with experimental biologists and clinicians, focused on the application of –omics analysis (metagenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics) in clinical trials or basic research studies.
