Remigio Picone, PhD
My studies concentrate on two cell biology interrelated topics cytoskeleton dynamics and cell morphology. To do this I use genetics and molecular tools in combination with nanotechnology (i.e., micropatterning, microfluidic devices), image data analysis, physical and mathematical modelling.

"This paper puts forward an interesting model, which suggests that dynamic microtubules polarized along the cell axis control the length of animal cells." Anna Akhmanova | Faculty of 1000
"This study demonstrates, with unusual precision and elegance, that cell length is set intrinsically by polarized dynamic microtubules and is independent of cell width, volume, cortical tension, and the actin cytoskeleton" Linda Wordeman | Faculty of 1000
"It is always exciting to read a paper that describes a fascinating discovery. It is even more exciting when that discovery opens the door to so many interesting questions. " HighMag
