Associate Prof. of Bioengineering, University of Pisa, Head of In-Vitro Models Group and NanoBioscopy Lab at the National Council of Research Institute of Clinical Physiology (CNR-IFC). Also involved in capacity building in the field of Biomedical Engineering, in association with UNECA and FABLAB Pisa .Author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications and of several patents on microfabrication and on bioreactors, co-founder of 2 high-tech companies.
Researching the assembly of cell surface appendages in archaea and their role in adhesion and biofilm formation. The model organism we study is the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. We use genetic approaches to identify systems in Sulfolobus that are involved in the assembly of cell surface appendages and biochemically characterize the subunits and their interplay in the assembly process.

I am an enthusiastic early career scientist with an interdisciplinary training and a strong computational background. My interests lie in leveraging the information hidden in large-scale omics data for better understanding of the mutational processes causing human cancer, for identifying potential cancer prevention strategies, and for developing novel approaches for targeted cancer treatment.

Head of Research Group at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Bern (Switzerland). Christian Althaus uses mathematical and computational modeling in combination with data analyses to investigate how the population biology of infectious diseases is affected by environmental changes, dynamic patterns of host immunity, or public health interventions. Key areas of his research are the transmission and control of sexually transmitted infections (STI), antimicrobial resistance and emerging infectious diseases.
