Dr. Cortesi’s expertise mainly relates to the development of computational models of complex biological processes and the integration of in-vitro and in-silico data in a coherent framework.

At the same time, she has experience in the design and implementation of innovative quantitative in-vitro assays and data analysis techniques with specific focus on non-invasive methods for scaffold-based 3D cultures.

Research by Marilisa Cortesi

3D cell cultures are becoming increasingly common in-vitro approaches to study cell behaviour in more accurate and realistic settings. The experimental study of these systems, however, is complicated by the…
Epithelial to Mesenchymal transition (EMT) is an exceedingly complex biological process that plays a key role in cancer progression and metastases formation. To unravel this complexity and isolate specific genetic…
Computational representation of complex biological processes is becoming an increasingly established approach to complement the experimental analysis and study methods to halt/redirect pathological processes. In this review paper we focus…
Transwell assays are another common experimental approach for the quantification of migration and invasion (see also Automatic quantification of (cancer) cell invasiveness). This method relies on a semi-permeable membrane and…
