Giovanni is a glycobiologist with nearly 10 years of experience in cancer cell biology and cell death. At Pheast, Giovanni works on understanding target mechanisms of action and developing strategies to evaluate targets in clinical studies on the translational science team. Prior to joining Pheast, he leveraged rare disease biology to develop new cancer therapeutics at Grace Science. As a postdoctoral fellow and graduate student, Giovanni developed a new method of measuring cell death in populations of cancer cells and uncovered novel signaling pathways that regulate cell death. Giovanni received a Ph.D. in biology from Stanford University and a B.Sc. in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University.
