In memory of a top Italian scientist

The 'Graziella Persico' lecture series in human genetics will be held on March, 3 at Cnr-Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, in Naples. It is organized by Cnr-Igb, Tigem–Telethon Institute, University Federico II, and is mainly addressed to young scientists to promote their learning about the most recent progress of the research in the genetic field. The initiative includes the awarding to a PhD student of a travel grant for the participation to a European scientific meeting.

Graziella Persico, Cnr-Igb research director 1991 onwards, was an outstanding scientist and was also included in the 'Top Italian Scientist' list. She has made special contributions to science, ranging from human genetics to cancer biology. Such are the cloning of G6Pd, the first gene identified on the human X chromosome, and the discoveries of Cripto and Pigf, extracellular factors active in normal body development as well as in disease.
