Phone +390250318427Monica Marzagalli is a Post-Doc fellow in Prof. Limonta’s laboratory, where she performed her PhD, studying the role of estrogens in melanoma. After a first Post-Doc fellowship (2016-2017), aimed at characterizing melanoma stem cells, she was employed as a Post-Doc fellow at the Beckman Research Institute, in California (2017-2018), where she acquired skills related to immune-oncology. Her researches are now based on the role of tumor microenvironment in melanoma, with focus on the immune cells.

His current research is aimed at characterizing the metabolism and the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in prostate cancer. Another project, conducted in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University, is aimed at dissecting the role of exosomes in tumor microenvironment and chemoresistance.
Michela Raimondi is a Ph.D student in Patrizia Limonta’s Lab, where she carried out her Master thesis focusing on the study of protein misfolding in prostate cancer. Currently, under Patrizia Limonta’s supervision, her research is focused on the investigation of non-conventional cell death mechanisms associated with novel anti-tumor compounds. Another project is aimed at characterizing melanoma cancer stem cells metabolism.
