Marco Raffaele Cosenza

Marco is a researcher in cell and genome biology with a deep expertise in imaging techniques and image analysis. He holds a degree in Medical Biotechnologies from the University of Naples and a doctorate degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Heidelberg. Marco conducted his doctoral research in the Clinical Cooperation Unit Molecular Hematology/Oncology at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), supported by the Helmholtz International Graduate School Scholarship. There, he applied advanced microscopy and imaging analysis techniques to characterize a new source of cell division errors in cancer. Furthermore, he continued his work in cancer genomics and the influence of chromosomal aberrations in mouse tumorigenesis. He holds an EIPOD fellowship and works as post-doc in the Origin and Function of Genetic Variation group at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), where he is leading an interdisciplinary project to apply cutting-edge automated microscopy, machine-learning and single-cell technologies to the study of genomic variation in cancer.
