Chiara Tordonato joined Prof. Pier Paolo Di Fiore’s lab at the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) in Milan in 2009 to perform her undergraduate thesis project. After earning her Master’s Degree in Biotechnology at the University of Bologna in 2010, she successfully applied for a PhD in Molecular Oncology at the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM) under the joint supervision of Dr. Francesco Nicassio and Prof. Di Fiore. Her PhD project was focused on identifying miRNA markers of mammary stem cells and involved the development of techniques for isolating pure populations of mammary stem cells. Since earning her PhD in 2015, she has held the position of Postdoc in Prof. Di Fiore’s lab, now at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO). Her research interests lie in the field of small non-coding RNAs and their unique ability to fine-tune complex biological processes. Her current project is focused on the identification of non-coding RNAs, specifically expressed in mammary stem cells from normal and cancer primary breast tissues and their possible role as epigenetic controllers of stem cell identity. Dr. Tordonato authored one first author review and is co-author on 3 research papers. She is the recipient of a 3-year Postdoc Fellowship from the Italian Association for Cancer Research (AIRC) and two prizes for the best poster presentation at the Second International Aegean Conference: the Long and Short of Non-coding RNAs (2017 and 2019).
