Riccardo Fodde studied biology and molecular genetics at the University of Pavia, Italy. His PhD, under the supervisdion of prof. dr. Luigi Bernini, was carried out at the Dept. of Human Genetics of the University of Leiden and has led to the characterization of the spectrum of mutations leading to thalassemia in The Netherlands. In 1990 he started his post-doctoral work on the molecular genetic basis of colorectal cancer in the same department, in the laboratory led by prof. P. Meera Khan. As a fellow of the Royal Dutch Academy of Science (KNAW) he visited the laboratory of prof. Raju Kucherlapati at the A. Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where he developed the first targeted mouse model for intestinal tumorigenesis.
In 2001, he became full professor of Cancer Genetics at the Centre for Human & Clinical Genetics of the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). His group has contributed to the elucidation of the molecular basis of hereditary colorectal cancer in man, developed a large number of pre-clinical mouse models for colorectal carcinogenesis, and characterized novel functional aspects of the APC tumour suppressor gene.
Since 2003 he is professor of Experimental Pathology at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam. Since 2005, he is a full member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO).
During the last decade, the focus of his research has been centred on the role of phenotypic plasticity in cancer especially in the context of inflammation and western-style dietary factors.
From 2017 he is adjunct professor at Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, P.R. China.
