Patrizia Lavia


Research Director at Institute of Molecular Biology and Pathology (IBPM), CNR, Rome (Italy). Main research interests are in molecular control of mitosis in human cells, its regulators and molecular errors that may cause genetic instability in daughter cells. Our goal is to gain mechanistic understanding how altered expression or function of key mitotic regulators (e.g. GTPases, kinases) can give rise to genetically unbalanced cells that may initiate tumorigenesis.
