After my bachelor’s degree in Biology at the Università degli Studi di Milano, I moved to the European Institute of Oncology (IEO).
Here, under the supervision of Prof. Kristian Helin, I earned my PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology and spent some more years studying new genes involved in cell cycle control and tumor suppression.
To increase my knowledge on immune-related pathways in cancer, I moved to Prof. Gioacchino Natoli's lab where, first as Postdoc and then as Senior Scientist, I developed an autonomous project aimed at dissecting the role of specific enzymes in macrophage antimicrobial response.
Along with my bench research work, I’ve always had a strong interest in sport and nutrition fields, thus, I pursued my studies in that direction, earning a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics and a Sports Nutrition Degree.
Since mid-2018 I’ve been working, as a researcher and nutritionist, in the Smartdfood Program.
Although involved in any activity of the program, I mainly contribute to development of topics and management of tasks related toscientific researchchronic diseases prevention and sport nutrition.
Besides those activities, I collaborate with university, public and private parties in disseminating nutrition research findings and knowledge.
Moreover, I’ve been engaged in planning, constructing and now maintaining, as a webmaster, the IEO Research website and I am a member of the Web-Site Communication and Scientific Dissemination Committee.
