Our Associate Head of the Health Data Science Centre has been appointed to a new task force created by Lombardy Region which aims to reduce waiting lists and verify the proper management in the provision of health services to citizens.
The task force includes members from Lombardy Region Welfare General Management, ATS, ASST, Lombardy Health System Control Agency and representatives from various local universities. It reports directly to the Welfare Department and the Welfare DG.
Francesca Ieva joined Human Technopole as Associate Head of the Health Data Science Centre in 2021. She is also associate professor of Statistics at the Politecnico di Milano. Her research activity has been always focused on statistical learning in biomedical context, both from a methodological and applied point of view. In particular, she deals with health analytics for complex data in medicine.
“The task force is expected to identify and monitor critical situation causing delay in healthcare service delivery and to put in action suitable corrections aimed at improving the accessibility to the services. This should be done consistently across regional areas, in order to provide patients and citizens with a better service, and can be achieved properly only if based on evidence coming from data. It is an honour and a challenge for me to be part of this group,” underlined Francesca.
Which brain connections coordinate the sense of sight with movement, for example maintaining stable vision while walking or moving our eyes? How is cholesterol formed and what functions does it have in its intermediate steps? These are the topics of the research projects awarded the Early Career Fellowship Programme, a call for proposals launched by […]
The first symposium on “Gender Equality and Diversity at HT” took place today at the Human Technopole Auditorium. The aim of the event was to discuss why there are differences in the career outcomes of men and women and how we can act to promote equality and inclusion at HT. During the event we heard from Gerlind […]
The Supervisory Board of the Human Technopole Foundation has appointed Marino Zerial as the institute’s new Director. Currently Director of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany, a research institution he helped found over 25 years ago, Marino Zerial is also an honorary professor at the Faculty of Medicine […]
Magda Bienko, Group Leader at the Functional Genomics Centre at Human Technopole has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant for her research project “Radialis”. The project, which has earned a funding of 2 million euros, aims to understand the design principles shaping genome architecture. Within our cells, DNA is folded in a three-dimensional structure. The […]
A web-based application developed by the Iorio Group and the IT & digitalisation team at Human Technopole helps non-computational scientists process and analyse CRISPR-Cas9 screens by reducing false-positive hits. CRISPR/Cas9 technology has become the gold standard for genome and epigenome editing, for studying the regulation of gene expression, and for high-throughput screenings aiming at identifying […]
