Stefania Crispi obtained a Ph.D. degree in cellular and molecular genetics from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy. In the 1989, she started her Ph.D. program doing the research activity at the Department of Genetics of the same university in which she spent the postdoc time (until 1998). In the following two years, she was a Temporary Researcher at CEINGE, Naples, Italy, joining the project PST Biotecnologie Mediche ed Agroalimentari. Since 2001, she has moved to the Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, “Adriano Buzzati Traverso,” CNR, where she started to apply high-throughput approaches in human genetics. Since 2008, she belongs to the staff scientist of this Institute and she is the Scientific Coordinator of the Gene Expression and Deep Sequencing Laboratory. Her research interests have been mainly focused on elucidate mechanisms of gene expression and transcriptional regulation, starting with Drosophila melanogaster as model organism. After that, she has moved her scientific activities towards humans, by applying high-throughput approaches to investigate the gene expression by means of microarray analysis, in order to elucidate mechanisms of transcriptional regulation. At present, she is mainly interested in understanding molecular mechanisms of cancer and the molecular mechanisms of new anticancer treatment based on combined therapies. Other interests aim to use high-throughput approaches in order to investigate human complex diseases. Furthermore, she has different collaborations that involve microarray data analysis and mining of several human diseases.
