Dr. Salcedo received her doctoral training in immunology at the Karolinska Institute at Stockholm, Sweden, graduating in 1996. In 1997, she joined the Laboratory of Molecular Immunoregulation under Dr. Joost J. Oppenheim and worked on projects regarding the roles of chemokines in angiogenesis and tumorigenesis. In 2002, she began working in the Pediatric Oncology Branch under Dr. Jon M. Wigginton, exploring novel approaches for the treatment of neuroblastoma by utilizing preclinical models. Since October 2006, she joined the Cancer and Inflammation Program, under Dr. Giorgio Trinchieri.


Research work is focused on the role of chronic inflammation in the promotion of cancer. Several genetic and chemical models of skin and colon carcinogenesis are being used to elucidate the protective and detrimental effects of innate immune responses in the induction and subsequent outgrowth of tumors.
