Thomas Tarenzi was born in Cremona, Italy, in 1990. He graduated in Chemistry at the University of Parma, with a thesis concerning the synthesis of doubly functionalized peptide nucleic acid monomers. He continued his studies at the University of Florence with a Master in Chemical Sciences; there he developed an outstanding interest in protein function research and in computational biochemistry as a tool to investigate structures, dynamics and interactions of biomolecules.
Thomas has been selected for the position of ESR 14 within the European Joint Doctorate Program High Performance Computing in Life Sciences, Engineering and Physics (HPC-LEAP), with joint degree awarding Institutions The Cyprus Institute (CyI) and the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (RWTH). The project, entitled "Targeting mosquito GPCRs and malaria transmission", is supervised by Prof. George Christophides and Prof. Paolo Carloni.
