Francesca Ciccarelli's Biography

Francesca Ciccarelli, Group Leader, European Institute of Oncology Milan

Francesca Ciccarelli is Principal Investigator at the European Institute of Oncology (Milan). She graduated in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Bologna and obtained the PhD in Natural Science at the University of Heidelberg. She has been research assistant in the computational biology group led by Peer Bork at the EMBL from 2001 to mid 2005.
Dr. Ciccarelli has an extensive expertise in comparative and evolutionary genomics, which she now applies to discover the genetic determinant of cancer. Her lab focuses on the discovery of variants associated to cancer development using next generation sequencing. In particular, they are interested in detecting rare mutations to measure genome instability and rebuild the evolution of individual tumors.
