1992 Master degree in Biology; 1995 Specialization in Biotechnology; 2000 Ph.D in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics; 2002 Researcher in Biochemistry at University of Rome Tor Vergata; from 2015 -today Associate professor in Biochemistry at University of Rome Tor Vergata. 2017 full Professor habilitation in Biochemistry. Since 2009 she is teaching Biochemistry for both Master Degree in Chemistry and in Material Sciences and Technologies; member of the Teaching Council of the PhD Program in “Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, member of the Spin-off Algares s.r.l.; in 2016 Founder and member of CIMER-Center of Regenerative Medicine at UTV and member of NAST- Nanoscience & Nanotechnology & Innovative Instrumentation center. Since 2018 she is a member of the Editorial Board of IJMS. For more than 20 years she has been investigating in Biochemistry field on the function and structural characterization of proteins, such as sulfurtransferases and other enzymes of the eukaryotic detoxification system, and of antimicrobial peptides. Currently her research is focused on the effects H2S-releasing donors on cellular signalling pathways and on the production and optimization of models of 3D-cell culture systems using protein hydrogels for both regenerative stem cell systems and cancer cell systems. She is a co-author of 90 publications in peer reviewed journals, H index = 33 by Scopus and about 9300 citations.
