Laura Maiorino holds a M.S in Medical, Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology from San Raffaele University in Milan, Italy. She received a PhD in Biological Sciences from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY, where she employed intravital imaging techniques and mouse models of cancer to study how the immune microenvironment contributes to metastasis. She was granted a JSMF Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in Understanding Dynamic and Multi-scale Systems to pursue her interest in multicellular immune responses and how they arise from molecular-scale events. Since November 2019 she is part of the Irvine Lab in the Koch Institute at MIT where her work focuses on the hierarchy of signals that immunotherapy brings about in the microenvironment.
