She is currently working at her PhD in the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Trieste, and the National Laboratory CIB, in Trieste, Italy, in the laboratory headed by prof. Del Sal.
Her project focus on
- the dissection of the molecular pathways involved in the acquisition of mutant p53 GOF in breast cancer aggressiveness, focused on the mechanism governing chemoresistance and tumor recurrence;
- on the identification of synthetic compounds as potent and specific Pin1 inhibitor for cancer targeted therapy.
