Andrea SottorivaBSc, MSc, PhD
Dr Sottoriva joined the Centre for Evolution and Cancer at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, in 2013, where his research focuses on using multi-disciplinary approaches based on high-throughput genomics and mathematical modelling to understand cancer as a complex system driven by evolutionary principles. The goal of his group is to identify those patient-specific rules that regulate the development and progression of the disease, to inform prognosis and novel therapeutic options that are tailored to the need of the individual cancer patient. He is currently the Chris Rokos Fellow in Evolution and Cancer at the ICR.
Dr Andrea Sottoriva obtained his BSc in computer science from the University of Bologna in 2006 and his MSc in computational modelling from the University of Amsterdam in 2008. While attending his BSc and master's he worked in neutrino physics at the Department of Physics of the University of Bologna and at the Institute for Nuclear and High Energy Physics (NIKHEF) in the Netherlands as a research assistant.
