After acquiring experience as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, USA) and the Sanford-Burnham Institute (San Diego, USA), Dr. Delogu served for five years as Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) at the University of Sassari (Italy) and as Visiting Professor at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD; Dresden, Germany). Today, she is head of the ImmuneNano-Lab at the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Padua (UNIPD, Padua, Italy).

Dr. Delogu has been the scientific coordinator of two interdisciplinary EU projects under HORIZON 2020, including the G-ImmunOMICS and CARBO-IMMAP projects on the characterization of engineered nanomaterials (two-dimensional [2D] material immune interactions through high-dimensional approaches for applications in nanotechnology, biology, and nanomedicine). She has engaged and collaborated with more than 10 leading institutions and high-profile international scientists in nanotechnology, nanomedicine, and bioinformatics. In this field, she has received several awards, including the “Marie S. Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA-IF)” at TUD under HORIZON 2020 from the European Commission, the “200 Young Best Talents of Italy 2011” from the Italian Ministry of Youth, and the “Bedside to Bench & Back Award” from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA.

Dr. Delogu is currently engaged in multidisciplinary projects in advanced data science, machine learning, and systems biology, such as the EU project HELICAL, providing training in the analysis of large datasets to elucidate the complex biochemistry of chronic diseases. She is the Coordinator of the STARS project DETECTION on the development of multiplexing tools based on the 2D material MXene. Moreover, she is Supervisor of an H2020-MSCA-Global Fellowship 2020 project. Since 2020, Dr. Delogu has been in charge of the Italian chapter and a member of the road map working group of the Advanced Material Global Pandemic & Future Preparedness Taskforce (AMPT;

She is currently a Visiting Professor in Biology at New York University Abu Dhabi for the Spring semester 2022.
