Investigating the mitotic role of RB

Aureliano Stingi portrait

I’m extremely glad and proud to receive this award, I want to thank the iGE3 committee that chose my project and for placed hope in me. This award will boost my academic career and will contribute to my personal growth. Now my goal is to understand deeply the mitotic role of RB in in the context of human cancer. This grant is a great opportunity but also a big responsibility therefore I will take advantage of it. Finally, I would like to thank my supervisor Patrick Meraldi that gave me this incredible opportunity allowing me to join his lab in 2016.
