Engineering Biology in Cambridge


Alberto Giaretta received a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and a Master's degree in Bioengineering both from the University of Padova. He received a PhD in Information Engineering, Bioengineering stream, from the University of Padova, Italy (in collaboration with the Elston's lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA). During his PhD he worked on modeling the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) gene regulation and modeling the interaction of Aspirin with COX-1 enzyme under both healthy and pathological conditions. During his post-doc at the Department of Information Enginnering at the University of Padova, Italy, he focused on modeling HPV gene networks, PB-PK/PD modeling of cardio-aspirin, systems pharmacology of Doxorubicin in multiple myeloma cells, developing novel mathematical frameworks to model gene networks and developing mathematical methods for parameter estimation of hybrid stochastic systems. In 2021 he won a Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship from the European Commission within the call H2020-MSCA-IF-EF-2020-ST.

His main research topics are: systems virology of Human Papillomavirus, systems biology and biophysics of the epithelial tissue, systems biology of single cell gene networks and signalling patwhays, development of mathematical frameworks for modeling gene networks, methods for stochastic systems biology, estimation methods for general stochastic systems and hybrid stochastic systems, systems pharmacology of cardio-aspirin and doxorubicin.

Alberto is currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at the University of Cambridge, division of virology, in Doorbar's lab at the Department of Pathology. Alberto is also a member of the Postdoc society at Trinity College, at the University of Cambridge.
