Dr Chiara Braconi

  • Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Reader/ Honorary Consultant (Institute of Cancer Sciences)

Biography

Chiara Braconi is a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Reader in the Institute of Cancer Sciences and holds a honorary contract as Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.

Her research is focussed on hepato-pancreatico-biliary tumours, and aims at delineating novel treatment strategies for these cancers by integrating genomics, epigenomics and patient derived models for the identification of novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

Dr Braconi received her MD degree from the University of Ancona in Italy, and completed her fellowship in Medical Oncology in 2006. She then enrolled in a joint PhD program between the University of Ancona and The Ohio State University, which was followed by post-doctoral training at the Ohio State University, USA.

She worked at the University of Glasgow between 2012 and 2014 supported by a Scottish Senior Clinical Research Fellowship, where she continued her work on the role of non-coding RNAs in hepatobiliary cancers.

In 2014 she joined the Institute of Cancer Research / Royal Marsden Hospital in London as a clinician scientist where she integrated the study of molecular biology with clinical research to sustain a patient-oriented programme in biliary-pancreatic cancers. She combined the study of transcriptional and post-transcriptional modifications with patient derived organoids to inform drug discovery and biomarker development.

She has joined the Institute of Cancer Sciences in May 2019 where she will develop a research platform on biliary cancers, connecting laboratory research and early clinical development in order to accelerate the field of predictive biomarkers and therapeutics.

She is currently working within national and international consortia (European Network for the Study of Cholangiocarcinoma, COST-action 18122, and Cholangiocarcinoma-UK) to support a collaborative international research programme in biliary cancers.
