Team - Laboratory of Biochemistry of Membranes and Applied Nutrition
Current position: post-doc researcher
My project of research is focused on the study of the lipidic metabolism in carcinogenesis. In particular, my aim is to evaluate the activity of D6D enzyme and other enzymes involved in fatty acid and membrane lipid metabolism in different cell lines of breast cancer by using biochemical and bio-molecular techniques.
Graduated in Pharmaceutical chemistry in 2019 from the University of Milan with a thesis entitled “Study on the lipid and aminoacid phenotype in plasma of cancer patients on a restrictive diet”. In the laboratory, she mainly works on the analysis of lipids and aminoacids of biological samples, especially blood, by HPLC, GC and UPLC-MS.
The scientific activity is finalized at the analysis of the aminoacid and lipid profile of blood’s samples of the healthy volunteers and oncological patients in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute in Milan and the analysis of the lipid phenotype of blood’s samples from diabetic patients by GC-FID, HPLC-ELSD and LC-MS.
