Rocco D'Antuono studied Physics in Milan (Italy) in the Laboratory for Advanced BioSpectroscopy (LABS) under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Chirico. After his studies, in 2011 was recruited from the FIRC Institute for Molecular Oncology (IFOM, Milan) as image analyst and microscopist specialised in live-cell imaging, TIRF, and confocal microscopy. In 2014 he moved to the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (Bellinzona, Switzerland), running the microscopy and intravital facility; there he had the opportunity to work also with flow cytometry and help in the setup of the mass spec service. In January 2018 he joined the Crick Advanced Light Microscopy facility as senior microscopist.

Posted by Rocco D'Antuono, on 20 July 2021During my university time at physics, I specialised in biophysics and started to approach advanced microscopy, but my idea of measurement had always been connected with other instruments’ readouts, not exclusively images. Once obtained my MSc, I started to work in an imaging facility at IFOM (Milan), as a microscopist, becoming later also in charge
