My research is focusing on the establishment and study of primary cancer cell cultures as well as on novel technologies for the analysis of pancreatic cancer tissues, including laser-microdissection. My previous achievements include a grant as PI on a project regarding “News therapeutic strategies against PDAC” in 2010, and a grant as “Young Investigator 2013” from Fondazione Veronesi. Moreover, I have been awarded six times as “Young Investigator” for poster or oral presentations at the annual meeting of the Italian Society for the Study of the Pancreas (AISP), and between 2011 and 2014 I have been AISP council member. I am also member of the European Pancreatic Club and American Pancreas Club since 2009.
