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.
The Pigino Group presents a CRISPR/Cas-based protocol for the targeted insertion of exogenous genes in the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas that is amenable to rapid high-throughput screening of mutant cells.
