Professor of Nephrology

Education/Credentials
  • Pharmacy Degree: University of Genoa
  • Bachelor's Degree: University of Genoa
  • PhD Equivalent: Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research

Research/Clinical Interests

Dr. Conforti laboratory studies cancer and autoimmunity. The main focus areas of her laboratory are: (1) to understand the role that ion channels and the tumor microenvironment play in the failure of the immune system to fight cancer, (2) to study how ion channels contribute to the development and persistence of the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus, and (3) to develop nanoparticles that can be used as new targeted therapies in autoimmune diseases and cancer.
