ICGEB Alumnus, Martin Marro, survives New York attack

The entire ICGEB Community is saddened to learn that ICGEB Alumnus, Martin Marro was severely wounded in the attack in New York City on Tuesday, 30 October 2017.

Thoughts and wishes go out to Martin, his family and friends, for a swift recovery, as well as condolences to the community of Rosario, Argentina, for the tragic loss of his fellow graduates.

In a statement to the local press, Prof. Giacca relates "We are all deeply struck by the news; I know him personally, an extraordinary person, I have a wonderful recollection of him over a distance of many years. He is a researcher who laid the basis of his career in Trieste, which he then developed with success in Boston." 

Martin Marro was a PhD student in Prof. Francisco Baralle's laboratory from 1997-2001, he went on to work at Glaxo SmithKline and University College London, UK, and subsequently Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, first in the UK and most recently in Cambridge MA, USA, where he is Senior Investigator, Lab Head and Project Team Leader.

He is also UK Adviser for International Cooperation at the Argentinian Ministry of Science and Technology.
