MariaTeresa Ferretti, PhD

Chief Scientific Officer at Women’s Brain Project

After growing up in Sardinia (Italy) my studies led me to Spain, England, Canada and finally Switzerland.  Here I am currently a junior group leader at University of Zurich working on biomedical research in the field of Alzheimer’s disease.

My goals are to help finding a cure for this devastating disease and to support the lives of Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers. It was shocking to learn that both are overwhelmingly women. Therefore I enthusiastically joined the Women’s Brain Project organization as a vehicle to promote gender-related science and advocate for actions in support of caregivers.
