Prinelli F. received the PhD in Experimental and Clinical Nutrition (thesis in Nutrition Epidemiology), PhD School in Biochemical, Nutritional and Metabolic Sciences XXVII ° cycle in 2015 and she graduated in Food and Human Nutrition (thesis in Nutrition Epidemiology) in 2011, at the University of Milan . Prinelli F. has been working at the ITB since 2008 and has been a researcher since 2019. She carries out research in the epidemiological field. Her research activity is mainly focused in the designing, planning and implementing epidemiological observational and intervention studies; drafting of study protocols and technical reports; management and statistical analysis of the data collected through the use of advanced automatic calculation tools; interpretation and dissemination of the results. The main lines of research include: I) description and identification of the clinical, metabolic, environmental and lifestyle determinants underlying physio-pathological mechanisms of chronic diseases (metabolic disorders, obesity, cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases), respiratory disorders, brain aging, and mortality; II) development and evaluation of the appropriateness and effectiveness of preventive and intervention strategies by means of ICT (eHealth) across different class of age; III) use of health information sources for the implementation of incidence and mortality studies; iv) research methodology in nutritional epidemiology, with a particular focus on how diet affects chronic diseases and mortality.

Prinelli F. is PI of the research project NutBrain (Ricerca finalizzata GR 2016), PI Italian partner of the project PROMED-COG (JPI ERA-HDHL), and CO-PI of the project EPICOVID19.
