more about Dr. Addeo

He was trained and received his doctorate in Italy from the University School of Medicine in Turin. After his residency, he worked for another 4 years in Turin as a Consultant Oncologist. From 2010 to 2017 he further sharpened his interest in thoracic malignancies in the UK. First at the United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust and later at the University Hospital Bristol, Dr. Addeo also took on the role as senior lecturer in Medical Oncology. As an active member of the NCRI Mesothelioma Working Group, he has also participated in several national and international NCRI drug studies. Dr. Addeo’s research continues to focus on drug development and translational aspects of precision medicine, immunotherapy and side effects, particularly in small and non-smal cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as well as melanoma.

During his time in the UK, Dr. Addeo developed further research interests in liquid biopsies, ctDNA analysis, and tumor mutation burden (TMB) in blood samples. For his research activities in this field he received a grant for a research proposal, which is still ongoing.

In September 2017, Dr. Addeo moved to Geneva, where he received the post of medical oncologist with a primary responsibility for Thoracic Malignancies.
