- About Giovanna
Giovanna Punzi, M.D., Ph.D., joined the Lieber Institute in the summer of 2015 as a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Weinberger’s group. Her main interest is the investigation of genetics and epigenetics of hetero- and auto-directed aggressive behaviors. Dr. Punzi attended the University of Bari ‘A. Moro’, where she received a M.D. in 2006, a residency in Psychiatry in 2011 and a Ph.D. in ‘Forensic Pathology and Criminology’ in 2015. Over the course of her residency and her Ph.D., she has been studying the relationship between aggressive behaviors, genetic variations and brain phenotypes, acquiring expertise both in forensic psychiatry and in neuroscience. At Lieber, she is investigating gene-expression post-mortem changes associated with suicide, with a special focus on discriminating violent means from non-violent means of suicide.
