A Lola and John Grace Distinguished Lecture in Cancer Research
Dr. Arianna Baggiolini is a Group Leader at the Institute of Oncology Research (www.ior.usi.ch) of BIOS+ (www.biosplus.ch) in Switzerland. Arianna studies melanoma, the most aggressive skin cancer. She is interested in defining how developmental programs are reactivated during the acquisition of a malignant state and how they regulate tumor formation and progression. Her lab (www.baggiolinilab.com) combines in vivo models and human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-based technologies to address how malignancy is regulated cell-intrinsically and depending on the microenvironment. Arianna was elected Leading Edge Fellow, Gerry fellow of the Gerry Metastasis and Tumor Ecosystems Center (GMTEC) at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and she is a Tri-Institutional Breakout Price awardee.
