Bianca Cioni

Ph.D Student


I studied Medical Biotechnology at University of Florence in Italy. Following a Master in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Birmingham in UK, I started working at the NKI as a PhD student from October 2013. My project is funded by the Marie Curie European research grant for the Initial Training Network on Tumor Infiltrating Myeloid Compartment Cells (TIMCC) and is supervised by André Bergman and Jan Paul de Boer. In this project we aim to analyze the myeloid cells infiltration in the tumor microenvironment of human tissues from Prostate and Head and Neck cancer. We will mainly focus on macrophage differentiation in M1 or M2 subtype. Understanding the mechanism of  myeloid cell regulation in the microenvironment and its relation with tumor progression might be critical for the development of new treatment modalities.
