Graduated at University of Genoa (Italy) in Biological Science (bachelor) and in Molecular Biology (master), I started my PhD in Biotechnologies in Translational Medicine at  Laboratory of Molecular Immunology and Oncology (Experimental Medicine Department , University of Genova, Italy) where I studied new proteins involved in cell migration and invasion of Triple Negative Breast Cancer cell lines.

During my PhD program, I visited the laboratory of Prof. Michael Lisanti and Prof. Federica Sotgia (University of Salford), where I became involved in anti-cancer drug discovery projects targeting cancer stem cells (CSC).
