I have been working with Alberto Mantovani’s group since 1999 at “Mario Negri” Institute and since 2006 at Humanitas Research Institute. I contributed to the production of human and mouse PTX3 reagents (recombinant protein, polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies) and to the quantification of PTX3 in human and murine biological samples from inflammatory diseases or cell cultures. I am now responsible of histology and immunohistochemistry experiments for the group, in tumor models and inflammatory pathologies.
