After a master degree in Medical Biotechnology from the University of Padua (Italy), I obtained a PhD in Biomedical Science-Neurobiology from the Universities of Padua and Bordeaux (France). During this time I focused on new biomolecular probes to screen therapeutic agents against Alzheimer's Disease. My PhD allowed me also to study the regulation of cellular calcium levels by Presenilins, and by the natural compound curcumin. After some experience as a Science Teacher, I started working as a Post-Doctoral fellow in the University of Udine (Italy) where my work focused on new therapeutic strategies against glioblastoma and on the regulation of the protein HDAC4. I currently work in Luxembourg as a member of the Cancer Epigenetic team at the Laboratoire de Biologie Molécularie et Cellulaire du Cancer (LBMCC). My current research aims at finding new epigenetic modulators for cancer treatment. ...

Leukemogenesis is a multistep process in which successive transformational events enhance the ability of a clonal population arising from hematopoietic progenitor cells to proliferate, differentiate and survive. Clinically and pathologically, leukemia is subdivided into four main categories: chronic lymphocytic leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, a...
