I graduated at the Biotechnology School, at the University of Milan, Italy in 2000 and I followed got the PhD degree in Biotechnology applied at the Medical Sciences, at the University of Milan, Italy in 2003. I spent 18 months at the Institute André Lwoff, CNRS, Villejuif, France, studying interferon dependent apoptotic signaling under the supervision of Dr Mounirà Chelbi-Alix. Since 2004, my research activity has been mainly focused on the molecular mechanisms underlying macrophage polarized activation in tumor and other inflammatory conditions in the group directed by Professor Sica, initially at “Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri”, Milan Italy then at “Humanitas Clinical and Research Center”, Rozzano , Italy. Since 2011 I am assistant Professor of Pathology at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Piemonte Orientale “A. Avogradro”. My current research focuses on macrophages in intestinal inflammation and cancer.
