Valentina Cappelletti is a research associate at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zürich in the Picotti lab. Valentina obtained her PhD from the University of Padua (Italy), working on phenotypic plasticity in yeast and discovering protein conformational switches as a potential adaptive mechanism. In the Picotti lab she investigates how the 3D structure of proteins controls their function in living systems. Her work extends the “structure is function” axiom of molecular biology to the systems level, enabling systems-wide structural proteomic analyses in health and disease.
