Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Fernanda Festa has focused her career in the use of genomics and proteomics approaches to study cancer cell biology, to understand the molecular mechanism for cancer progression and to identify new drug targets that could be used for the treatment of cancer patients. Currently, she is working with pediatric and adult neuronal tumors, including neuroblastoma and glioblastoma, to identify novel mechanisms through which oxidative stress and calcium entry mediated by the ion channel TRPM2 (Transient receptor potential melastatin 2) increases drug resistance, cell proliferation and tumor progression.
