research activity

Daniela Bonofiglio’s research activity is mostly devoted to dissecting the molecular mechanisms involved in initiation and progression of endocrine-related cancers with the main goal to identify novel markers and potential therapeutic targets for these diseases. In particular, her achievements contributed in advance scientific knowledge on the tumor suppressive action of Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor gamma (PPARγ), focusing on the inhibiting role of natural and synthetic PPARγ ligands in breast cancer growth and progression.

Other scientific interests include:

-Role of PPAR in adipocyte differentiation and macrophage polarization

-Natural and dietary compounds in breast cancer

-Role of adipokines in breast cancer progression

-Endocrine disorders related to environmental deficiencies

-Adherence to the Mediterranean Diet and physical activity in adolescence
