Her research activity is mainly based on the identification of novel targets (prokineticin system) or therapeutic approaches (stem cells) to counteract experimental neuropathic pain. Since 2016 (grant funded by Cariplo Foundation) she focused on chemotherapy induced neuropathy. Recently she started a collaboration with dermatologists to study itch mechanisms in psoriasis.
