About

I am currently the Head of the Tumor Microenvironment Lab in Institut Curie Research Center, Orsay-Paris (France). My scientific interests are tumor angiogenesis, vessel co-option, cell migration and radioresistance. I received my PhD in “Complex Systems in Life Science” in 2010 from University of Turin, Italy. During my PhD training and a postdoc period in Italy, (a) I investigated tumor angiogenesis and integrins, (b) I provided the first evidence of a new sub-cellular structure – the endothelial podosome rosette – that controls blood vessel branching during sprouting angiogenesis and (c) developed the first ex vivo human knock-down angiogenesis assay. In 2012, I joined the laboratory of Dr. Rakesh K. Jain in Harvard Medical School (Boston) and focused my research on tumor microenvironment, brain tumors and intravital microscopy. Specifically, I investigated (a) physical forces from brain tumors and their effects on neuro-vascular functions and (b) vessel co-option in glioblastoma. In 2017, I was selected as a Junior Group Leader in Institut Curie and I am now setting up his new laboratory.
