Riccardo Arrigucci, PhD
​​​​​​​Scientist II
Immunology and Immunotoxicology

Somerset, New Jersey
When I joined Labcorp in 2018 I was faced with the incredible opportunity to apply the expertise acquired during my research studies in academia to the industrial environment.  Having predominantly worked in basic research at the university for many years, at Labcorp I am now able to move into translational science studies that will lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for management of various diseases. 

I obtained my PhD in Medical Biotechnologies from the University of Siena, Italy, where I studied the molecular mechanisms of cell separation in oral streptococci. Then, driven by the desire to broaden my research interests and gain expertise in biomedical immunology, I decided to move to the USA and join Rutgers University. There, my research focused on T cell-mediated immune responses in tuberculosis. During the 4 years I have spent at the Public Health Research Institute, I have acquired technical expertise in flow cytometry and cell-based assays, and I have collaborated with industrial partners to develop a semi-automated platform for the detection of immune cell mRNAs by flow cytometry.

At Labcorp, I am part of an excellent team of scientists who are enthusiastic and committed to their work. I enjoy working with people towards the same goals, and I am happy to have the opportunity to work on projects with potential to bring clinical benefit and improve people’s life.
