Marge Bock (since 1987) and Yan Jin (since 1993) are valued and essential members of the Lab. Without them there would be no Cattini Lab.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my trainees

for everything they taught me.

- quoted by a wise but not so young Italian


Our goal is to not only create new knowledge and translate this knowledge when appropriate, but also to provide an excellent educational experience for our trainees in a respectful environment.
