Guistina Ferone, Ph.D

Postdoctoral fellow


I gained my Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology in Italy then, on July 2012, I joined the Berns lab. I consider this a great opportunity: the NKI environment is very challenging; moreover the group has extraordinary tools that make you comfortable to approach a wide range of topics. I am particularly interested in studying lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma through the generation and characterization of mouse models carrying inducible genetic lesions found in human tumors. To hit uniquely basal cells of the bronchial epithelium (cell-of-origin of SCC) I use intratracheally delivered viruses carrying Cre recombinase under specific promoters.
