Sabina Pucci obtained a Ph.D. degree and works as an Aggregate Professor in the Department of Biomedicine and Prevention, University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Rome, Italy. She mainly focused her teaching and research activity on tumor immunology and molecular and genetic aspects of human tumors.

She has authored many articles in peer‐reviewed journals, and she was an Editor of the book Clusterin: Advances in Cancer Research, Elsevier. The current studies of Pucci are directed to define mechanisms involved in tumor insurgence and progression focusing on microenvironment influence of proinflammatory cytokines on the cooperation among stroma, tumors cells, and immune response. She is also involved in the identification of new targets for the development of new drugs and pharmacogenetics at the Centre of Excellence for the study of genomic disorders and multifactorial diseases at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” funded by MIUR in 2001.
