Research interests :

Current Research Fields:

• Cancer biology, with a particular focus on lung and breast cancer
• Stem cells and Cancer Stem-like cells populations
• Small non-coding RNAs

Current Research projects:

• Network modeling of proliferation/cancer/apoptotic pathways in human lung cancer cells using a genome-wide loss of function screen.(with PARi platform)
• Systems biology approach for genome-wide loss-of-function screen analysis, with applications related to lung cancer research.(with PARi platform)
• Biostatistics for genome-wide screen analysis ( with PARi platform)
• Mathematical modeling of the different mechanisms of microRNA action with the final aim to get dynamical signatures for each proposed mechanism.(with Dr. Zinovyev, Institute Curie)
• Bioinformatic analysis of the deep sequencing of small non-coding RNAs, associated with chromatin AGO-complexis.
• microRNA profiling for the processes of proliferation, differentiation and cancerogenesis using LNA microarray and TLDA qPCR technique.
• Mathematical modeling of cancer stem-like cells population dynamics(with Prof. Capasso, University of Milano)
• Mathematical modeling of the processes of plant growth (with Dr. V. Volpert, Lyon)
