The early work of Dr. Nadia Bernasconi focused on the human immune system and on the analysis of the mechanisms involved in the maintenance of serological memory. This work led to a 2002 research award from ASIRB (Swiss Italian Association for Research in Biomedicine) and Roche-Diagnostics, and to publications in journals such as "Science and Blood". During her post-doc, Dr. Nadia Bernasconi has primarily worked on the isolation of human memory B cells and in the production of antibodies against malaria, viruses such as avian influenza and cytomegalovirus and bacteria such as corynebacterium diphtheriae. During her career, Dr. Nadia Bernasconi has worked in prestigious Institutes such as Norris Cancer Center in Los Angles or the Institute of Research in Biomedicine in Bellinzona and her work has been acknowledged by publications in different journals.
