Translational research

Dr. Sergio Marchini graduated in Biology at the University of Milan, obtained a degree in Pharmacology at University of Pavia, and received a PhD in Biological Sciences at the Open University. He has experience in the study of pharmacology and molecular biology of tumors through genomic and transcriptomic technologies. He worked at the Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS as head of the Translational Genomics Unit, where he led research projects about the mechanisms of malignancy and chemoresistance of ovarian cancer. He achieved important results in biomarker discovery for early detection and predictive of response to therapies, with potential important clinical implications. In Humanitas, he is currently the Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Pharmacology, guiding a team of wet-lab scientists and bioinformaticians, and he is the coordinator of the Humanitas Genomic Unit and Sequencing facility.
