Denis Torre

Denis came to the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai from the University of Trieste, Italy, where he studied Biological Sciences and Biotechnology. He entered the Biomedical Sciences PhD program in 2019, joining Dr. Ernesto Guccione and Dr. Robert Sebra’s labs to study early mammalian development.

During his doctoral studies at Icahn Mount Sinai, Denis published 10 papers in peer- reviewed journals, 2 of which as a first author, and jointly won the Mount Sinai Trainee Innovation Idea Award. Denis has also been an active member of the scientific community, mentoring multiple graduate students and trainees in high-throughput, multi- omics data analysis.

Denis is incredibly grateful to his family, wife, friends and classmates, who have always supported him and made his experience at Sinai rewarding and memorable. He would specifically like to thank his co-mentors Dr. Ernesto Guccione and Dr. Robert Sebra for their support and mentorship throughout the years.

Denis will graduate with his PhD and continue his academic training as a postdoctoral fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
