Chiara Ambrogio got her B.S./M.S. in Medical Biotechnology from the University of Torino, Italy, in 2004. In 2008, she got a PhD in Immunology and Cellular Biology from the same University, working on the ALK oncogene.

For her postdoc training, in 2009 she joined the lab of Mariano Barbacid at the Molecular Oncology Program at the CNIO, Madrid, Spain. She later moved to the Medical Oncology Department at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston to complete her translational training in Pasi Janne’s lab as Senior Scientist (2016-2019).

At the end of 2018 she was awarded the “Armenise-Harvard Career Development Award” (CDA) that allowed her to establish her independent lab at the Molecular Biotechnology Center (MBC), University of Torino, where she is also affiliated as Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology.
