Descrizione dei temi di ricerca

Thyroid tumors: pathology and biology of the thyroid; molecular mechanisms that control tumor development and progression. Dr. Tallini is World Health Organization working group member and chapter responsible author for the book Classification of Tumors-Pathology and Genetics-Tumors of Endocrine Organs; co-editor of the book Tumors of the thyroid and Parathyroid Glands-AFIP Atlas of Tumor pathology (American registry of Pathology 2014-Fourth series); co-author of the Thyroid Gland chapter in Rosai and Ackerman’s Surgical Pathology textbook.

Soft tissue tumors: analysis of mesenchymal tissue tumorigenesis. Dr. Tallini has been one of the members of the international study group Chromosome and Morphology (CHAMP). This collaborative effort between leading American and European institutions was set up to integrate molecular biology and cytogenetic information with pathology and clinical data. Its work (1994-2002) has provided the basis for the current classification of soft tissue tumors.

Diagnostic molecular pathology: the application of innovative technologies to the practice of pathology with special reference to the molecular diagnosis of solid tumors. The Molecular Pathology Unit of the Azienda USL di Bologna directed by Dr. Tallini performs routine molecular analysis of solid tumors in the province of Bologna for the Italian national health system, covering two large medical centers (Ospedale Maggiore and Ospedale Bellaria in Bologna) as well as smaller community hospitals.

Oncologic neuropathology: the study and molecular analysis of brain tumors.
