Marzia Bruna Gariboldi

Università degli Studi dell'Insubria, Italy

Marzia Bruna Gariboldi was born in Milan, Italy, in 1967. She obtained her degree in biological sciences (1994) at the University of Milan and the specialization in Pharmacology (2000) at the University of Pavia. She worked as a Technician at the Institute of Pharmacology of the University of Milan (1994-1999), a Guest Researcher at the Laboratory of Molecular Pharmacology, NHI (Bethesda, USA) (1995), a Technician at the Department of Structural and Functional Biology of the University of Insubria (1999-2000), and a Researcher at the Department of Structural and Functional Biology of the University of Insubria (2000-today). Since the early years of her career, Dr. Gariboldi has focused on the study of the molecular determinants of cell response to anticancer agents, investigating multidrug resistance-related drug transporters as well as signal transduction pathways involved in cell survival and in the control of apoptosis. More recently, the role of hypoxia in tumor cell chemosensitivity was also examined. Current research topics include the study of novel photosensitizers for use in anticancer photodynamic therapy and the evaluation of novel platinum derivatives. Moreover, Dr. Gariboldi is coauthor of about 35 full papers in Medline-based journals and of about 50 communications at national and international meetings, and she contributed a chapter in the volume Multidrug Resistance in Cancer Cells (1996, Wiley). She is currently affiliated to the following Scientific Societies: Italian Society of Pharmacology (since 2001), AACR (since 1998), Italian Association of Cell Culture (since 2000), and Italian Society of Photobiology (since 2008)
