ABOUT

Molecular and Experimental Pathology Laboratory

Molecular and Experimental Pathology Laboratory

The Molecular and Experimental Pathology Laboratory has two main goals: on one side, our research focus is the characterization of specific molecular signatures in human cancer tissue specimens by combining genomic and phenotypic information, merging tumor mutational status with multispectral immunofluorescence expression results. On the other side, we aim to provide histopathological assessment of animal models and human tissue specimens as part of comparative and experimental pathology.

Info

Main Interests

Identifying molecular signatures in specific disease settings (i.e. oligometastasis, tumor immune infiltrates).

Methods

Culture of human cell lines; Generation of tumor xenografts in mice; Immunohistochemistry evaluation of different biomarkers; Multispectral microscopy; Histopathological assessment of animal models (comparative pathology)

Models and Regions

Human tissue and cytological specimens; Mouse tissues
