About me

I am a Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Sussex Cancer Centre in Brighton, and Honorary Clinical Reader at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. I trained in Genoa, Italy, where I qualified as MD in 1986. I started my career at Genoa’s National Cancer Institute, and also worked at the Santa Croce Hospital in Cuneo (Piedmont). In 2002 I moved to Swansea, UK, where I worked as a Consultant and Honorary Senior Lecturer until February 2018. I have served as Research Lead for the South West Wales Cancer Centre and as a member of the NCRI Breast Cancer Studies Group.
My main clinical and research interests are treatments of early and advanced breast cancer with chemotherapy, hormone therapy and targeted agents. I have contributed to several national and international clinical trials as Principal Investigator, Chief Investigator or Steering Committee Member. I am the Author or co-Author of more than 100 publications and in 2007 I was awarded a PhD from the University of Maastricht for research in the field of endocrine treatment of breast cancer.
