Her routine diagnostic activity focuses on breast pathology and molecular diagnostics of solid tumors, including sign-out for in situ hybridization, DNA sequencing and RNA-based assays applied to diagnostics. Her research interests span from histopathogenesis of breast carcinomas to molecular pathology of special histologic types of breast cancer and genetics of HER2-positive carcinomas. A specific interest in HER2-equivocal breast cancer has been funded by the Italian Association of Cancer Research (AIRC), Regione Piemonte and the Ministry of University, Education and Research. She has also actively worked on the standardization of the preanalytical conditions in Pathology to ensure optimal tissue preservation and quality of DNA, RNA and antigens.
