The Fanciulli lab has a longstanding interest in the control of transcription in cancer through the study of Che-1 protein activities. Recently, the lab has extended its research to translational studies on Multiple Myeloma. Dr. Fanciulli has been responsible for the NGS facility since 2009 and the Animal facility since 2011.

Our state-of-the-art NGS facility at the Regina Elena Institute is equipped with a range of cutting-edge instrumentation, including Illumina DNA sequencers such as Nova-seq 6000, Next-seq 500, and Mi-seq. Additionally, we have a complete NCounter Nanostring station with a GeoMX instrument, a DEPArray station, and Agilent Tape station and Bioanalyzer for estimating nucleic acid samples integrity. Recently, we have acquired two 10X Genomics Chromium stations for single cell libraries production. The facility is staffed with three full-time researchers and four bioinformaticians.
