Dr Pichiorri’s laboratory focuses on elucidating the mechanisms of regulation and the functional role of non-coding RNA molecules in multiple myeloma (MM) development and their role in modulating cancer microenviroment and drug resistance. She has also an active interest in providing the molecular basis to improve MM therapeutic approaches and new drug testing, with a specific focus on oncolytic RNA viruses. Her lab uses a combination of multiple myeloma mouse models, human samples and high throughput technologies to understand mechanisms of myeloma progression.
