The incidence of thyroid carcinoma is rapidly increasing.  Although generally associated with good prognosis, a fraction of thyroid carcinoma is not cured by standard therapy and progress to aggressive forms for which no effective treatments are currently available.

During the  seminar  I will present the contribution of my reaserch group to the knowledge of the molecular ethiology of thyroid carcinoma, focusing on studies performed  in the last few years. These include:  i) the evidence that other elements, beside driver oncogenes, contribute to thyroid carcinogenesis; ii) the demonstration that oncogene-induced senescence restrains tumor progression;  iii) the identification of thyroid tumor cell specific vulnerabilities, to be explored as novel therapeutic targets.
