Dr. Biro received his PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Germany in 2011. His doctoral work focused on the mechanics and regulation of the cytoskeleton. He previously studied Physics (BSc) and Bioinformatics and Theoretical Systems Biology (MSc) at the Imperial College in London, UK, and did his Masters research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US. He also worked as a research associate at the Bioinformatics Institute in Singapore and formerly at a particle accelerator in Tsukuba, Japan. Since 2012, he works at the Centenary Institute of Cancer Medicine and Cell Biology and the University of Sydney in Australia, where his group is part of the Immune Imaging program. His research, highly multidisciplinary in nature, focuses on the role of the cytoskeleton during the invasive migration of cancer cells and the migration of specialised immune cells that guard against cancer.
