Giorgia Dalla Libera Marchiori
Gio holds a master in Biomedicine from Karolinska Institutet and a bachelor degree in Biotechnology from the University of Padua (Italy). Before starting her master in Stockholm, she had travelled and worked in USA and Canada, taking a break from science. She is currently a Research Assistant and PhD student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where she works on Visceral Leishmaniasis transmission.
She joined SOGH few years ago and she has been the previous Communications Manager of the Organization. Her passion for global health issues and women rights for health brought her deciding to start a project on Menstrual Health in Uganda. The project is a collaboration between SOGH and UDHA, already our partner on the Mama & Family Project, and it is just on its first steps. She believes strongly in this project and SOGH’s core value of health equity, therefore, she is very excited to see how the project will develop.
In April 2019, she became also SOGH Director. She decided to take such leadership role because she believes strongly in the great work her team is doing and wants to support SOGH members in fulfilling their goals while helping the Organization flourishing. She feels honored by this responsibility and looks forward to see what the future will bring to SOGH.
