Nicola Ivan Lorè
IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute
Nicola I. Lorè was graduated in 2008 at the University of Milan (Milan, IT) and in 2012 he obtained a PhD degree in Genetic and Biomolecular Sciences from the University of Milan.
During his PhD studies, he defined and characterized new experimental models to dissect opportunistic pathogens/host interaction during acute and chronic airways infections. In 2012 as a post-doc fellow, he joined the San Raffaele Scientific (OSR) Institute (Milan, Italy) and worked in the Infection and Cystic Fibrosis Unit. As part of his postdoctoral training at OSR, he collaborated and spent time in international academic research centers, such as the Institut Pasteur de Lille, Tel Aviv University or Wellcome Trust, Centre for Human Genetics. His postdoctoral studies were mainly focused on mechanistic comprehension of the immune responses occurring during respiratory diseases mediated by chronic infections. Today he works as research associate in the Emerging Bacterial Pathogens Unit at the San Raffaele Scientific Institute (Milan, Italy). His current research interests and supports are focused on host-pathogen interaction with particular attention on bacterial virulence and immunopathological response in the field of opportunistic pathogens, such as nontuberculous mycobacteria.
