Dr Stefano Valbonesi is a Clinical Scientist with a Master Degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Neuroscience Genetics. He got his degrees from the University of Chieti and the University of Brescia, Italy. During the years of the PhD he's specialized in Multiplex Ligation Probe Amplification (MLPA) for the study of large deletions/duplications in patients affected by Parkinson disease and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, becoming an expert of these disorders. In the last years he's been working both in Italy and Germany mastering the art of genetic data interpretation from NGS-panels and Whole-Exome-Sequencing, remaining at the same time a point of reference for the diagnosis of large genomic structural variations.

Dr Francesca Cristofoli is a Clinical Scientist with a Master Degree in Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnologies from the University of Pavia, Italy, and a Doctorate degree in Biomedical Sciences obtained from KU Leuven, Belgium, supported by a FWO (Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek – Vlaanderen) PhD Fellowship. During her bachelor and master studies, she also attended the Class of Biomedical Sciences of IUSS (Istituto Universitario di Studi Superiori) in Pavia. She begun to work in the field of human genetics during her bachelor and master thesis internships, studying the contribution of Copy Number Variations to the pathogenesis of undiagnosed epilepsy cases. During her PhD, she focused on untangling the genetic causes of sindromic microcephaly by whole exome sequencing, developing a considerable knowledge on neurodevelopment disorders.
