She was awarded her degree as specialist in Medical Oncology in 2004 and her PhD in 2008. She completed her research training for almost 2 years at the University of Colorado Health Science Centre, Denver, CO, USA. During these 2 years she was involved in a translational programme for developing new targeted agents in colorectal cancer disease. After completing her medical school studies, she was awarded a Fellowship in Oncology at the “Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II” and decided to join the laboratory of Prof. Ciardiello and Prof. Tortora. Dr Troiani has worked in their laboratory since 1998, studying the role of growth factors and their receptors in neoplastic transformation and the novel therapeutic strategies targeting growth factor receptor signalling. Her long-term interest is translational oncology, developing new therapeutic strategies and initiating clinical trials. She has run a series of translational research projects, with both clinical and basic science investigational arms, at an academic medical centre. During her career, she has learnt that to fight cancer is a big challenge and only by connecting the preclinical with the clinical work it is possible to make one piece of the wider puzzle. She is an active member of ESMO.
