Assistant professor at the University of Bologna. She carried out her research activity on three main fields, concerning 1) the study of plant toxins, known as ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs), 2) the design and the in vitro and in vivo experimentation of immunotoxins, in order to obtain toxic pharmacological molecules specifically towards certain cellular targets responsible for a pathological state; and 3) the study of enzymes that can vary the cellular REDOX balance.
The studies carried out in recent years have led to numerous scientific articles published in international journals with "Peer review" and have often been presented in national and international conferences.
