I earned my bachelor’s degree in Biology at the Università degli Studi di Milano, next, I moved to the European Institute of Oncology (IEO).
Here, under the supervision of Prof. Kristian Helin, I accomplished my internship, overcame the State Exam, enrolled to the National Biologist Register and, finally, got a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology.
My research in Kristian Helin’s lab, first as a PhD student and later as a postdoc, was primarily focused on dissecting the role of the tumour suppressive protein p53.
Then, I moved to Prof. Gioacchino Natoli's group, where I developed an autonomous project, opening a new field of research in the lab. I discovered that Parp14 is a critical regulator of the Ifnb1 gene, controlling the antimicrobial responses of a subgroup of Interferon stimulated genes-encoded proteins.
Along with my bench research work, I’ve always had a strong interest in sports and nutrition fields, thus I’ve earned a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics, from the Università Politecnica delle Marche, and a Sports Nutrition Degree.
Starting from June 2018 I've joined, as a researcher and nutritionist, the Smartfood Program.
Besides, I collaborate with university, public and private parties in disseminating nutrition research findings and knowledge.
Moreover, I’ve been involved in planning, constructing and now maintaining, as a webmaster, the new IEO Research website and I am a member of the Web-Site Communication and Scientific Dissemination Committee.
