Prof. Nicola Aceto is a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Professor of Oncology and Group Leader of the Cancer Metastasis Laboratory at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Recent discoveries of the Aceto lab include important insights into the biology and vulnerabilities of circulating tumor cell clusters (Gkountela et al., Cell, 2019, cover of the journal; Szczerba et al., Nature, 2019; Donato et al., Cell Rep, 2020). Previously, Prof. Aceto worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Haber lab at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center in Boston, MA, USA, where he identified circulating tumor cell clusters as metastatic precursors (see Aceto et al., Cell, 2014). He has also been an active member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, MA, USA, and a visiting scientist in the Clevers lab at the Hubrecht institute, the Netherlands. He received a PhD summa cum laude from the Friedrich Miescher Institute (FMI) in Basel, Switzerland (see Aceto et al., Nature Medicine, 2012), numerous international awards and he is an inventor on 10 patent applications related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
