Giulia Rancati received her Degree in Biotechnology from the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy) in 2001. She started out her career as a graduate student in Prof. Simonetta Piattiís lab at the University of Milano-Bicocca where she focused on mechanisms of spindle assembly checkpoint activation in budding yeast. After receiving her Ph.D. in 2005, she stayed in the same lab for a short postdoctoral training during which she collaborated with Andrea Musacchio at IFOM (Italy).
In 2006 Giulia started her postdoc in Prof. Rong Liís group at the Stowers Institute (USA), where she studied the role of aneuploidy in cellular adaptation to environmental and genetic perturbations. In October 2010, Giulia has been awarded the A*STAR Investigatorship and will join the Institute of Medical Biology in Singapore as a Principal Investigator in May 2011. Her lab will focus on the role of genome instability and DNA copy number changes in cancer evolution and development of chemotherapy resistance.
