The Sidoli lab applies mass spectrometry to cell biology


Our work focuses in identifying new mechanisms that regulate chromatin, the control panel of the cell. We develop and exploit proteomics techniques to define how chromatin dynamics define how we look like… and how we can intercept disease development

We received our new server (see here)! 512 GB of RAM and 350 TB of space for mind-blowing bioinformatics. We will update you soon with our new searches using the Graphic Processing Unit.

Simone gives a lecture about “History of mass spectrometry” to teach the new Class of students (see Student Day here) why their work will matter, no matter how big or small.

Meeting up with our proteomics friends in New York City. In the picture, we have Pavel Shliaha from Microchemistry & Proteomics at Memorial Sloan Kettering, Søren Heissel from the Proteomics Resource Center at The Rockefeller University and Katarzyna Kulej from UPenn. New York is full of amazing labs and companies working with proteomics and mass spectrometry!

The magazine Fortune Italia mentions our lab as Top 10 Italian scientists under 40 to “keep an eye on” (read here, in Italian). We are honored for the recognition, also because we know way more than 10 Italian scientists who are doing excellent work :-)

Simone introduces the lab to the new MD/PhD students at Einstein! Very interesting discussion, which means very promising young minds growing.

New section on the website: publications! The first work coming out with our new affiliation at Einstein!

Also Funding & Awards section added! We are very grateful to all those who support our research and recognize the importance of chromatin proteomics, especially considering that there are many many other scientists who equally or more deserve recognition.

We added the first Team members to the website. The Einstein Proteomics Core is filled with great talent, and we have decided to merge our space for a very productive collaboration. More members coming very soon.

The Sidoli lab and the David lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) meet to discuss future plans to investigate still “dark sides” of chromatin. Take a look at the team of Yael David and the amazing things they do with chemical biology (link)!
