Dr Daniele Bergamaschi

BSID Treasurer and BSID Trustee

Dr Daniele Bergamaschi is a senior lecturer within the Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research at the Blizard Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, QMUL in London. He is a Deputy Education Lead for Non-clinical teaching. After postgraduate studies in Cancer Pharmacology at Mario Negri Institute in Milan (1994-98), he had postdoctoral research training at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in London (1998-2005). He was appointed in 2005 as a Lecturer at the Blizard Institute and in 2009 promoted to Senior lecturer. He has over 15 years of internationally recognized research experience in cancer cell biology with publications in prestigious journals such as Nature Genetics, Cancer Cell, and Molecular Cell. His current research interest is focused on the signalling pathways that fine tune epidermal homeostasis during skin development and eventually monitor how these mechanisms could be deregulated in specific types of cutaneous diseases. He is also historically interested in melanoma with a particular focus on the physiological roles of p53 family members in the intrinsic apoptotic resistance of melanoma cells. More recently he is exploring in BRAF inhibitors melanoma resistant cells how the p63 signalling is controlled by microRNAs.
