Biography

After completing a Master degree in Pharmaceutical Science at the University of Perugia (Italy), I pursued my career in science undertaking a PhD in Cell Signalling at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge, in Heidi Welch lab on the role of the GPCR adaptor protein Norbin and its effector P-Rex1 in neutrophil-mediated inflammation and the clearance of bacterial infection. I have learned and published in the fields of neutrophil signaling, neutrophil biology, innate immunity, GPCR signaling and trafficking, Small GTPase biology.  I developed skills in vivo experiments, including complicated procedures that require surgery and intravital microscopy. My passion in studying biological processes in living organisms by multiphoton microscopy, made me applied for my current postdoc position in the laboratory of Dr David Croucher at the Garvan Institute, Sydney, where I will use intravital imaging as technique approach to pinpoint critical events that drive tumour invasions and metastasis.
