From 1986 to 2003 I held the role of Graduate Technician and since 2004 I am a confirmed Assistant Professor at the University of Bologna. In the first years of my activity I did my research in Immunology and since 2004 I have directed my interest in Tumor Glicobiology. My interests are aimed in particular at the study of the differences that tumor cells acquire during transformation, that is, in the capacity of tumor cells to overexpress (or reduce) some glucidic structures. My intent is to understand the biological meaning of this process. I am involved in Italian and foreing research projects. I am author of numerous publications.
