Marianna is an NIH Postdoctoral Visiting Fellow at the Predictive Toxicology and Screening Group, US National Toxicology Program Laboratory (NIH/NIEHS in North Carolina). Marianna began her academic research as an academic officer at the Israel Naval Medical Institute after she graduated a bachelor’s degree in natural science (Biology, Technion – IIT). During her military service in the Navy, she pursued a second bachelor’s degree in engineering (Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Technion – IIT) and was later involved in research at the Molecular Nutrition Laboratory at the Biotechnology and Food Engineering Department, Technion – IIT (PhD candidate), at the Human Iron Metabolism Section at the NIH/NICHD in Maryland (research assistant), at the Microfluidic Technologies Laboratory at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Technion – IIT (research scientist) and at the Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research Laboratory, Technion – IIT (postdoctoral researcher). Marianna is seeking to continue her academic career in toxicology, a field that has always fascinated her due to its overlapping with various disciplines such as biology, chemistry, pharmacology and medicine, and due to its great impact on both human health and the environment.
