Since January 2022 – He is working on the Ricerca Finalizzata 2019 project – “Exploiting circulating levels of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition transcription factors (EMT-TFs) RNAs for the diagnosis of colorectal and pancreatic cancer“. The project has the same structure as the patent and exploits the levels in blood (“liquid biopsy”) of biomarkers of Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) for the diagnosis of colorectal (CRC) and pancreatic (PC) cancer.

From March 2021 to December 2021 – He investigated on AIRC IG 2018 Id.22234: “H63D variant of the HFE gene as modifier of pancreatic cancer progression: a model for dissecting host immune response.
