Personal details


I obtained my masters degree in Medical Biotechnology at the University of Florence. I then moved to Basel, where I started my PhD training at the cancer immunotherapy laboratory of the Department of Biomedicine. During these years, I studied the impact of IL-17-releasing CD4+ T cells in human colorectal cancer.


Due to my strong interest in tumor immunology, I decided to join Ton Schumacher's group on a Swiss National Science Foundation fellowship. My current research aims to improve our understanding of the role played by different T cell subsets in immune responses that develop in human colorectal cancer.
