    Sarah Cargnin
    Sarah Cargnin

    PhD student


    Research projects in the field of pharmacogenetics, with the aim of investigating the impact of genetic variants on individual variability in drug response, both in terms of therapeutic effect as well as drug toxicity. Major efforts are focused on the identification of genetic predictive factors allowing a personalized therapeutic approach in patients affected by migraine, chronic pain, Medication Overuse Headache (MOH), breast cancer, and receiving renal transplantation.
