Ario de Marco

Ario de Marco The Molecular Interaction group is specialized in identifying recombinant antibodies that can be used to image cell receptors or to modulate their activity. It developed suitable expression vectors to obtain tags fused to the antibodies that simplify their functionalization and collaborates with nanoparticle and biosensor specialists for exploiting the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of the selected binders. So far most of the efforts have been addressed to molecules involved in tumor progression, but we expect that the plasticity of our panning approach that uses whole cells will be useful for recovering antibodies for analyzing a large array of scientific issues.
