Francesca Klinger

Histology - Bio/17


She has a broad knowledge in reproductive and developmental biology, in histology, and stem and germ cell biology, with a primary focus on investigating how chemotherapy treatment can impact on subsequent female fertility and ovarian function.
This expertise has allowed her to establish strong collaborations with national and international research groups and to obtain funding aimed at research and at supporting research grants for young researchers.
Three main research lines are currently followed in the laboratory: 1) Study of new mechanisms to protect the ovary from chemiotherapic treatments; 2) Effect of LH on damage induced in the ovary by chemotherapeutic drugs; 3) Reprogramming mesenchymal stem cells into germ cells in vitro.
Associate professor at UniCamillus.
