RESEARCH

We study basic and translational aspects of thyroid cancer genetics and biology using a variety of techniques in human samples, cell systems and animal models.

The current interests of the lab comprise:

  • Understanding the role of TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase) promoter mutations in thyroid cancer progression, including the mechanisms of transcriptional deregulation and its downstream consequences in thyroid cancer biology.
  • Identifying genomic determinants of malignancy and evolution in thyroid nodules and cancers, particularly those affecting the regulatory elements of the genome.
  • Providing preclinical rationale that can inform novel and individualized therapies for anaplastic thyroid cancer patients.

Our aim is to produce scientific knowledge of the highest quality while achieving a healthy work-life balance. We support each other, we share ideas, resources and experiences, and we celebrate our individual and collective accomplishments.
