Researcher | Research Background
Dr. Pietro Genovese was recently a Project Leader at the San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy, having completed his post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Molecular and Cell Biology of Gene Transfer with Professor Luigi Naldini in Italy. His current research focuses on gene-engineering technologies with a focus on hematopoietic stem cells and T cells. His future aim is to broaden his studies on pre-clinical development and to advance genetic engineering strategies with the aim to develop new treatment for human diseases, including cancer. At Dana-Farber/Boston Children's, Dr. Genovese joins the Gene Therapy Program in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and the Program for Gene Therapy of Rare Diseases in the Department of Pediatrics (DOP). He has already had an impressively productive post-doctoral career with multiple publications, successful grant applications, and patents filed.
