Paride Pelucchi

Paride Pelucchi is a researcher since 2012, at the "Stem Cell Biology and Cancer Unit" of the ITB-CNR. He graduated (cum laude) in Biotechnology in July 2004 and obtained a PhD in Molecular Medicine (curriculum: Genomics , Proteomics and Related Technologies) in January 2008, both at the University of Milan. His research is focused on the characterization of genetic and epigenetic networks underlying stem cell properties in both physiological and pathologies, especially for oncological ones (Cancer Stem Cells ), using combined approaches (e.g. biological, molecular and bioinformatics). Moreover, the study of stem cell mechanisms has also been applied to somatic reprogramming to Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs), which is of particular relevance for disease modelling and regenerative medicine. The development of complex cell systems, such as organotypic three-dimensional cultures, has made necessary to use effective and high-resolution molecular approaches such as single-cell transcriptomic analysis. During his studies, Paride Pelucchi has developed extensive skills in both molecular and cellular biology, developing systems based on lentiviruses for the study of specific genes and microRNAs applied on in vitro models of diseases. Furthermore, epigenetic study approaches (ChIP-Seq, ATAC-seq, etc ...) have been added to the traditional transcriptomic approaches in the characterization of the molecular mechanisms underlying specific pathologies (e.g. breast cancer, rheumatorid arthritis, etc ...).
