A new collaborative research program

A new collaborative research program is established with the participation of
NYU Langone Medical Center (Prof. Iman Osman), ITT Oncogenomics Unit, Core Research Laboratory (Dr Laura Poliseno, also affiliated with IFC),
CCS @ University of Miami and LISM (Dr Enrico Capobianco).

The program is based on the study of pseudogenes at transcriptome scale in human melanoma samples available from TCGA and other repositories.

The aim is to advance knowledge in this novel field and provide new evidence about unknown regulation mechanisms of a disease affecting especially
many young people. Clinical, experimental, bioinformatic and computational teams are joining the program from the partner Institutes.
