Two scientists with different backgrounds, who have always worked in the cancer research field, share their experience in what the lab life is, throughout the career of a researcher. How to conceive, plan and carry out projects with translational objectives, that can eventually impact on the clinical course of cancer patients, will be discussed. Two examples of research projects with these characteristics will be described. One project, focused on breast cancer, investigates the molecular features that may distinguish breast cancer arising in young women from those in the non young counterpart, aiming at the identification of molecular fingerprints that could provide better and more tailored treatments for young breast cancer patients. The other project, focused on ovarian cancer, deals with the investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying resistance to standard therapies and the ways to re-sensitize drug resistant tumors, using targeted agents that can eventually improve patient survival and quality of life.
