Meyer Children's Hospital
After graduating in Medicine and Surgery and specializing in Pathological Anatomy at the University of Florence, Dr Chiara Caporalini continued her training as an anatomopathologist with experience at well-known international centers (Boston Children Hospital and Academisch Medisch Centrum Universiteit of Amsterdam). Since 2015 he has been part of the SOSA of Pathological Anatomy of the AOU Meyer. Since 2017 he has been providing consultancy service at the Careggi AOU in the field of bone and soft tissue pathology. Since 2015 he has also collaborated with the CBTTC and since 2018 he has also been a member of the scientific committee. In 2019, together with colleagues from AOU Meyer, he presented a project entitled: "Exploring the Possible Role of Mutations in MTOR Pathway Genes in the Pathogenesis of DNET Tumors".

Exploring the Possible Role of Mutations in MTOR pathway Genes in the Pathogenesis of DNET tumors
Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNET) genetic origins are little understood. Using samples from CBTN BioBank, researchers are conducting studies to help answer questions about their development to identify novel drug therapies.

Molecular Characterization of Glioneuronal Tumor with Neuropil-like Island (GTNI)
Our research focuses on genetic studies of poor responder pediatric brain tumors. In particular, we are studying the genetic basis of pediatric Glioblastoma Multiforme (pGBM) and Glioneuronal tumor with neuropil-like islands (GTNI) through different techniques of molecular biology, array-CGH andDown
