His fascination for what lies just beyond the boundaries of our knowledge and comprehension drove me during his fifteen-year long scientific career through Italy, the U.S. and Belgium. He devotes his research to the understanding of the biology of cancer from different perspectives, in an effort of gaining a more integrated view of how cancer cells behave and interact with their environment. "Cancer is a complex disease and only through unraveling such complexity we will be able to effectively fight it", according to Matteo.
