Giuditta Benincasa is a Molecular Biologist and got her PhD in Translational Medicine at the Department of Advanced Medical and Surgical Sciences (DAMSS) of University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli" in Naples (Italy). During her two-year post-doc fellowship, she focused on epigenetic-sensitive mechanisms underlying heart failure with preserved ejection fraction with the support of Network Medicine approaches. The goal was to identify novel biomarkers useful to advance precision medicine and personalized therapy of heart failure and its differential clinical phenotypes.

DNA methylation profiling of circulating CD4+ T cells and network analysis reveal that JUNB, SETD7, and MEF2D genes predict patients with heart failure preserved vs. reduced ejection fraction
