Stefano Piccolo

Professor of molecular biology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Padua

Dr. Piccolo received his PhD from the University of Padua, Italy. He trained as post-doctoral fellow with Eddy De Robertis in HHMI-UCLA, to then return to Padua where he is currently Professor of Molecular Biology at the School of Medicine. Dr. Piccolo unveiled new mechanisms by which cells sense their environment and use this information to build and maintain tissues with specific form, size and function.

Dr. Piccolo also showed how disruption of these homeostatic mechanisms leads to tumor formation, progression and metastasis. Current main research topics are on Mechanotransduction, Wnt and Hippo pathways and how these signals regulate adult stem cells and cancer stem cells.
