Paola Picotti’s team uses advanced targeted proteomic and phosphoproteomic methods to study protein misfolding and aggregation in cells.

Curriculum Vitae

Paola Picotti has been an Assistant Professor (Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Professorship) of the Biology of Protein Networks at the Institute of Biochemistry (IBC) in the Department of Biology, since 2011.

She was born in Udine, Italy, in 1977.

Paola Picotti studied pharmaceutical chemistry and technology at the University of Padua in Italy and completed a PhD in the molecular mechanisms of protein folding at the same university’s CRIBI Biotechnology Center in 2006.

After a brief research stint at the MATI Center of Excellence at the University of Udine in 2007, she joined ETH Zurich as a Marie Curie post-doctoral student in Professor Rudolf Aebersold’s group at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology. She developed a quantitative method of targeted proteomic analysis that enables the behavior of cellular protein networks to be studied under different conditions. In 2011 she took up a position as an independent group leader at ETH Zurich’s Institute of Biochemistry.
