Maria Grazia Spillantini
"SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH" Award
There is the breath of Piero and Michelangelo, in the knowledge of Maria Grazia Spillantini, who was born in Caprese and moves from Sansepolcro the steps of that knowledge, which will take her away, to experience her personal vision of perspective.
A perspective that does not play with colors and geometry, but that has the deepest logic in mathematics: the one that regulates the human body.
Today Maria Grazia Spillantini continues the work of Rita Levi Montalcini, she who was her favorite pupil. It does so with its own path that sees research in continuous progress.
The results can be found in the most authoritative medical publications in the world that rightly highlight the discovery of the mechanics of the protein that causes the death of the neuronal cell.
Once the objective was achieved, the commitment continued with the concentration of the scientist, combined with the same curiosity of the high school student of Sansepolcro. There is only one change: today, from his window the gaze runs on the green of the Cambridge countryside, and not on the bends of the Tiber.
Now, with emotion and emotion, and a bit of pride, allow one: “Maria Grazia is back. Welcome back and together with the hope, from us all, accepts an embrace of gratitude for what most important you can infuse: hope ".
