The information published in this page are entirely managed by NITHIYA JESUTHASAN who is completely responsible for it.

Nithiya Jesuthasan holds a MPh Degree attending the Second Level Master's Degree program in Medical Statistics and Genomics offered by the University of Pavia in 2019 with the thesis "investigating the genomic link between Alzheimer disease and Cancer" , a MSc in Biology Applied to Biomedical Research (class LM-06) in Biology at the University of Milan in 2012. She has been working at ITB-CNR since 2014 carrying out research activity in the epidemiological field, covering activities related to clinical trials and cohort studies, data- collection, -monitoring, -management, and data-analysis and drafting of technical reports. Her main area of interest is epidemiological and genomic analysis related to neurodegenerative diseases, and the identification of genes potentially involved in the inverse relationship of occurrence between cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

Interest areas:

Epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, GWAS, neurodegenerative diseases, brain aging, Alzheimer's, Tumors
