I am currently working in the section of haematopathology of the Institute of Pathology of the University of Kiel in Germany. I am mostly focusing on the analysis of coding and non-coding genes in the development of different types of B-cell lymphomas. We perform gene expression and mutational analyses as well as a number of in situ analyses on tissue biopsies, in order to associate particular changes either in tumor cells or in the microenvironment, to improve lymphoma classification as well as diagnosis and prognosis.

I have a strong background as researcher in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology applied to cancer research. I am mainly interested in the understanding of the signal transduction events that drive oncogenic cellular transformation, through the modulation of both coding and non-coding RNAs.
