Conceived and designed the experiments: AN. Designed the software used in analysis: SB. The endothelial cell spheroid assay provides a suitable in vitro model to study lymph angiogenesis and test pro- and anti- lymph angiogenic factors or drugs. Usually, the extent of cell invasion, observed through optical microscopy, is measured. The present study proposes the spatial distribution of migrated cells as a new descriptor of the lymph angiogenic response. The utility of this novel method rests with its capacity to locally characterise spheroid structure, allowing not only the investigation of single and collective cell invasion but also the evolution of the spheroid core itself. Moreover, the proposed method can be applied to 2D-projected spheroid images obtained by optical microscopy, as well as to 3D images acquired by confocal microscopy. To validate the proposed methodology, endothelial cell invasion was evaluated under different experimental conditions.
Email: s. The focus of the Marino research group is on the biology of stem cells and progenitor cells, on the pathways and genes involved in control of their maintenance, proliferation and differentiation, in particular the Polycomb group genes. The group is currently investigating the role of deregulated epigenetic mechanisms in initiation and progression of brain tumours —medulloblastomas and glioblastomas- in experimental models and in human tumour samples. In her clinical role as a consultant neurolopathologist, she specialises in the neuropathological assessment of neuro-oncological surgical specimen and muscle biopsies. She trained in molecular genetics with Professor Anton Berns at The Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow of the European Community studying the role of the tumour suppressor Rb and p53 in the pathogenesis of medulloblastoma in genetically engineered mouse models. She established her own laboratory research group in firstly at the Institute of Pathology, University of Zurich and then since at the Blizard Institute in London.
