She is working at the Department of Biology and Genetics for Medical Sciences, Medical Faculty, University of Milan, where she is full professor of Cell Biology. During 1982-83, she was research fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, and in 1991 visiting professor at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, London. She is member of the Italian Societies of Genetics, of Biophysics and Molecular Biology and of Cell Biology and Development. Main research interests: analysis of transformation markers and of tumorigenicty in human cell hybrids, characterization of molecules secreted by in vitro cultured human keratinocytes, isolation, mapping, analysis of the expression of eukaryotic genes. Her present research activities concern the study of pathogenetic mechanisms underlying human genetic diseases (rare hereditary coagulation defects, and autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy). She is author of 57 publications on peer-reviewed international journals.

Gent, Belgium E-mail Nationality: BelgianEMBL information Group Leader Zabeau Group Cell Biology and Biophysics From 1978 to 1983 Biography Hide biographyBiography: Marc Zabeau graduated in Zoology at the University of Gent in 1971 and obtained his Ph.D. degree with Prof. J. Schell in 1974 on Escherichia coli genetics. In 1976, he was awarded a Fullbright Hayes postdoctoral fellowship at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories (Cold Spring Harbor, NY, USA) and worked with Dr. R. Roberts on type II restriction enzymes. From 1978 to 1983, he was a research group leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg (Germany), where he developed recombinant DNA technologies for overexpressing genes. In 1983, he moved from academic research to industry to head the research at Plant Genetic Systems N.V. (Gent, Belgium), where his team was to first to successfully engineer insect resistance in plants. In 1988, he first set up a biotechnology consulting firm, and in 1989 started the biotech company KeyGene N.V. in Wageningen (The Netherlands). There, he invented the AFLP technology which became a most successful tool for positional cloning and marker assisted selection. In 1995, he created GenScope Inc. to apply AFLP to genome wide transcript profiling for pharmaceutical applications, a company that was acquired two years later by the Perkin Elmer Inc. He directed PE GenScope until 1998. In October 1999, he returned to academia, to become Scientific Director of the Department of Plant Genetics at the Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology (VIB), University of Gent. After refocusing the departmental research and organization towards a systems biology approach he took up the position of Director of Strategic Planning. In this period he actively promoted European Plant Science, and plant genomics in particular, as Chairman of the European Plant Science Organization (EPSO). Currently, he combines his academic responsibilities with the management of Methexis Genomics, a technology company which he started up in 1999, and which is developing novel high throughput genetic analysis technologies using mass spectrometry.
