Introducing Dr Sonia Leonardelli

December 2019

Essen, Germany

2019 ended with a successful PhD defense! Congratulations to Dr. Sonia Leonardelli for defending her PhD dissertation entitled “Genomic and non-genomic alterations in melanoma contributing to disease progression and therapy resistance”.

During her PhD Sonia (ESR14; University Hospital of Essen) focused on understanding the mechanisms of tumor resistance to signaling pathway and immunotherapeutic inhibitors and characterized the changes in cellular phenotypes and senescence that occur during treatment.

We would like to applaud Sonia on her great achievement and wish her continuing success!
