Luciano Di Croce obtained his PhD in “Molecular and Cell Biology” from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. In 1996 he moved to the University of Marburg (Germany) as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Miguel Beato where he became interested in understanding the link between transcription and chromatin structure. After a second postdoctoral stage at the European Institute for Oncology (IEO, Milan) in the lab of PierGiuseppe Pelicci, he established his group at the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG, Barcelona) in 2003, as an ICREA Professor.
Di Croce’s group has focused its research efforts on understanding how epigenetic modifications and chromatin changes are established and, once in place, how they affect gene expression, stem cell differentiation and transformation.
