Dr. Stefano Freddi is a physicist in Pier Paolo Di Fiore’s group at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO), who supports researchers in the universe of microscopy, cytometry and data analysis.
He obtained a MD in Biophysics in 2008 and then a PhD in Physics at the University of Milano Bicocca. He has always been fascinated with basic research and he initially focused his interests in the development and characterization of gold NPs for applications in nanosensors which produced 7 articles. Dr. Freddi has gained a broad experience in spectroscopic and imaging techniques including fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, two-photon microscopy and in-vivo and ex-vivo microscopy.
Dr. Freddi joined the Molecular Medicine for Care (MMC) program, directed by Prof. Pier Paolo Di Fiore in 2013, at IEO. Since then, he has improved his skills in the creation of codes for image analysis, data management and the development of physical and mathematical models applied to biology. He has also extended his knowledge in cell biology, learning to manage cell lines and techniques for flow cytometry analysis. In the last years, he successfully gained new skills in biostatistical analysis, including survival analysis and creation of codes with R software for the analysis of PCR and IHC data generated from the screening of candidate cancer markers in large cohorts of patients. Dr. Freddi is now supporting the research activities of the Molecular Pathology Unit and the Novel Diagnostics Program.
