About

My name is Giorgia Zaetta and I live in Chelmsford, Essex UK. I just joined the Charles River Laboratories team in Chesterford Park (UK) as Scientist. I worked one year in Genoa (Italy) as a PostDoc fellow at the Italian Institute of Technology - IIT. Previously, I spent one year at The Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard, as PhD visiting student, where I deepened my knowledge in organic chemistry synthesis and approaches and tools used in its practice. I have been involved in working as a chemist over the last 7 years in Italy, during my MD thesis and PhD studies, particularly in carrying out a research project, dealing with design, synthesis and structure-activity relationship studies of novel small molecules. I have a Master of Pharmacy (110/110 cum laude) gained at the University of Bari, Italy. During these years, I was also elected member of the University Academic Senate for 3 years, so I acquired a considerable experience in the finance, administration and management areas. Before 2012 and since when I was a child, I have been a sailing racer. Started for fun, I became a professional, competing in National and European championships and attending to the 2007 Sailing World Cup in Auckland, New Zealand. Best Regards. GZ
