Andrea Iseppon is an Associate with Catenion and lives in Berlin.
Andrea received his Ph.D. in Molecular Immunology from King´s College London while working at the Francis Crick Institute in London. He worked on the cross-talk between the immune system and the intestinal microbiota, focusing on the mechanisms that control mucosal antibodies production, a biological process that is crucial for the establishment of a beneficial host-microbiome interactions. Earlier in his studies at the Immunobiology Department of Yale School of Medicine, he collaborated on a project that uncovered the potential of rewiring pro-inflammatory immune cells into homeostatic cells, a process that could be exploited as a new therapeutic opportunity for chronic inflammatory auto-immune diseases.
In his free time, Andrea is an amateur photographer and a traveler. He loves to snowboard and hike but also challenge himself with other sports (bouldering, kite surf, sandboarding…). Being Italian, Andrea is a food and wine lover and a natural “chef”. You should try his worldwide famous ‘pasta alla carbonara’!
Andrea did his PhD at the Francis Crick Institute being affiliated with King´s College London, London, UK. Previously he completed his Master and Bachelor’s in science at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, Italy. During his thesis internship, Andrea had the opportunity of joining the Immunobiology Department at Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA.
