Prof. Marino Zerial, Director of the MPI-CBG, has pioneered systems biology and multidisciplinary approaches to study endocytosis in a broader, systems perspective. He recently conducted a systems biology analysis by genome-wide RNAi screening in HeLa cells and in C. elegans, using quantitative multi-parametric image analysis (QMPIA) to extract functional information from images and identify regulators of endocytosis (see Endosomics Web Database). Zerial serves in the editorial board of high impact journals, in international funding committees and is a co-founder of JadoLabs, a start-up biotech company devoted to drug development for membrane-based metabolic diseases (i.e. Alzheimer, asthma). Zerial has long standing experience in collaborative projects with industries and academic institutions and over 10 years of experience in high content and high throughput cell-based image analysis screens.
