Silvia Cenadelli graduated in 2003 from Faculty of Biotechnology of the University of Milan and in 2009 she got her PhD in Biotechnology, specialised in veterinary and zootechnical sciences.

In 2014 she got her second degree in Pharmacy at the University of Pavia and in July of the same year she passed the State examination for pharmacists.

In 2015 she attended the Master program in Cosmetology at the same university.

From 2008 she worked as a molecular biology researcher in the Genetics lab at The Italian Experimental Institute Lazzaro Spallanzani, she participated in various national and international research projects and was mainly responsible for the study of new techniques with molecular markers gaining experience in molecular genetic analysis and bioinformatics.

The scientific path was concluded by working in various Italian and European Labs: the Istituto di Chimica del Riconoscimento Molecolare of the CNR of Milan; the Dipartimento di Patologia Animale Igiene e Sanità Pubblica Veterinaria, sezione di Microbiologia ed Immunologia of  The State University of Milan; the Dipartimento di biologia evolutiva of the University of Padua; the HCMR Institute of Marine Biology and Genetics, Bioinformatics unit, Greece; Dipartimento di Scienze del Farmaco of the University of Pavia.  Currently she is head of the Cosmetics (chemistry) lab with as main activity phytocomplexes. She attended numerous training courses and she is author and co-author of publications and she has participated as a speaker at national and international conferences.
