Sara De Biasi is Assistant Professor of General Pathology and Immunology at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia School of Medicine (Italy). Dr. De Biasi obtained her PhD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine (area of interest: Immunology) from the same University in 2013. She then worked as post-doc in the lab of Immunology directed by Prof. Andrea Cossarizza. Most of her work has focused on adaptive immune response during HIV infection, autoimmune diseases, and cancer. In particular, she studied the role of rare cells such as iNKT cell and circulating endothelial cells (CEC) in these conditions. Sara De Biasi is interested in the dynamics of T cell homeostasis and functions in conditions of acquired immunodeficiencies. Her work focused on multiple sclerosis as a model to study autoimmunity. In particular, she has been investigating the role of innate-like T cells (iNKT cells), rare cell populations among peripheral blood mononuclear cells. In addition, she has taken advantage of her experience acquired in the field of rare events detection such as iNKT cells to study circulating endothelial cells (CEC), their precursor (EPC) in different type of cancers. More recently she has studied the immunology of SARS-CoV2. Dr. De Biasi is an International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) Marylou Ingram Scholar and serves on several ISAC task forces. She is very involved in teaching flow cytometry, being active part of the CYTO U task force and of the Live Education Task Force.
