This is my Credit Motivation

My name is Cristiano Marini, and I’m an Italian MSc student in Genetics and Molecular Biology.

I decided to move to Zurich to improve my skills in Stem Cells research at UZH and ETH Universities.

After obtaining my Bachelor in Biological Science from the Sapienza University of Rome, my primary objective was to challenge myself, finding new stimuli and build my career.


In February 2021 I’ve been selected for an Exchange program in Zurich, funded by the University of Zurich, allowing me to study and experience the Swiss research environment.


In August 2021, after being accepted to MIT university to work on my thesis, I decided to reject it and continue my research career in Zurich, at ETH, where I’m pursuing a challenging project on Bone Marrow stem cells regulation.


I’ve been working since I started my Bachelor, without burdening so much on my Family, and that’s what I am also doing part-time here.


Unfortunately, the amount of money required for living in Zurich is above my possibilities, and the time I spend every day in the lab doesn’t allow me to work as much.


For all these reasons I’m here to ask for funding for my studies here in Zurich until I will be able to start working full-time.

Plans after study

After graduating I will have the opportunity to continue with my academic career with a PhD at the Mechanobiology Department where I’m working now at ETH University, or at the Gastroenterology Department of Sapienza University of Rome, where I worked for almost 2 years, until January 2021.


Another plan could be to start an internship or a full-time job in one of the multinational healthcare companies placed in Switzerland or in the rest of Europe with which I’m in contact, like La-Roche.


In case I will opt for a PhD, the monthly should be around 3500 CHF, just at the beginning.

On the other hand, working for a big company will allow me to earn from 2500 CHF/month for an internship, to 7000 CHF/month for a Scientist position.

In every case, my future salary will cover all the expenses and the loan received.
