I am an Associate Professor in the Laboratory of Animal and Cell Physiology, Department of Science, University of Rome ‘ROMA TRE’, Rome Italy. My work focuses on the molecular mechanisms of estrogen receptor biology in the regulation of cell physiology. Recently, I realized that the modulation of estrogen receptor levels in breast cancer cells is a novel pharmacological target. I introduced this novel idea in the scientific literature and I tried to challenge this concept by using drugs that are intended for human diseases different from breast cancer. I have obtained encouraging results that prompted me to move from in vitro research to animal models.
