26 October 2018 – Technological advances over the past decade have transformed opportunities for research in human systems as well as on models with direct relevance to human biology, thereby boosting possibilities for scientists to develop improved, more targeted strategies for promoting human health and healthy ageing.
The Human Technopole, a new institute for life science research that is coming into being in Milan, Italy, has the overarching goal of developing stratified approaches to improve patient care (personalized medicine) and quality of life. Research at Human Technopole will take a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to health and ageing by integrating cutting-edge technologies with basic and translational science, starting with critical areas including genomics, computational biology, structural biology and neuroscience.
In his talk as HT Director, prof. Mattaj introduced the Human Technopole project, outlined future plans and how these will contribute to scientific development in Italy and Europe, and presented the many opportunities the new institute will offer to international scientists.
This week Human Technopole reaches an important milestone: our first 100 employees have been recruited! In a little over a year we have grown from a staff of less than 30 people to 100, and counting. Our numbers continue to increase with new colleagues joining us every week from all over the world. Our employees […]
A ceremony to re-name the first three streets of MIND – Milano Innovation District took place today marking an important milestone in the district’s project to celebrate and give visibility to lesser known or forgotten innovators. The famous Decumano of the universal Exposition will officially become “Viale Decumano” and the area surrounding the Tree of […]
We are excited to share that the redevelopment works of the North Pavilion and South Pavilion of the Human Technopole campus have been completed. The buildings, originally built for Expo Milano 2015 to accommodate exhibition space and restaurants will now host laboratory and office space as well as state-of-the-art facilities for life science research. The North Pavilion works were completed in mid-March 2021. The ground […]
On 13 April at 10.00 Human Technopole Foundation and Associazione Civita organise a debate among representatives of the cultural, research, political and industrial world to discuss the potential role of science and culture in relaunching the Italian economy on the eve of the presentation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The virtual event will be streamed live on Human Technopole’s Facebook page as well as […]
We are excited to launch the first scientific Workshop on Content-Aware Image Restoration (CARE) on 19-21 May, hosted by Florian Jug, Head of HT Image Analysis Facility and with the participation of Anna Kreshuk, EMBL Heidelberg & Jan Funke, Janelia USA as speakers. The workshop is for up to 20 microscopy users/biologists from outside HT […]
