Personal data

Born on November 12th, 1974 in Brescia, Italy. Italian citizenship.


She gained her degree at the School of Medicine, University of Brescia, Italy, in 1997 (110/110 cum laude).
She is now a fellow researcher at the Section of Experimental Oncology and Immunology, School of Medicine, University of Brescia.

Her researches has focused on

1994-97: regulation of the gene expression of HSP70 protein family in different rat tissues in normal and pathophysiological conditions.
1997-00: biochemical studies for the production of biotechnological heparins.
2001-02: Tat-antagonist activity of polysulfonated/polysulfated compounds.
2002-04: pentraxin 3/FGF2 interaction.
2004-present: protein-protein interaction by surface plasmon resonance.
She is author of 17 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals.
