Today we were pleased to welcome Italian Minister for University and Research Maria Cristina Messa and give her a tour of the new Human Technopole labs.
Together with President Simoni and Director Mattaj, the Minister met group leaders from the Neurogenomics Research Centre and Structural Biology Research Centre who shared their research plans and future developments for the institute.
Minister Messa visited the newly furnished lab spaces inside Incubator Lab 1, including the spaces dedicated to HT’s Genomics Facility with the recently installed Next Generation Sequencers.
Minister Messa was an early supporter of the Human Technopole. In 2016, when she was Rector of Università di Milano-Bicocca, she was part of the Coordinating Committee tasked with guiding and supervising the initial phase of the project until the establishment of the Human Technopole Foundation.
During her visit to the MIND district, Minister Messa also spoke at the Innovation Roundtable of “Sinergie per innovare in Lombardia”, an event organised by Regione Lombardia at MIND – Milano Innovation District. President Marco Simoni also attended the roundtable and shared HT’s most recent achievements, from attracting over 70% of its scientists from abroad to building state of the art infrastructure for the national scientific community.
The Consiglio di Sorveglianza of the Human Technopole Foundation has approved the implementation of five National Facilities, intended as infrastructural facilities with a high technological impact, available to the national research community. As prescribed by the Convenzione stipulated pursuant to Law 160/2019, the approval follows a two-stage public consultation process: the first stage involved representatives […]
More than 80 immune-mediated diseases have been identified to date. However, it is unclear whether the same genetic factors underpin their onset. By coupling statistical methods with genome-wide association studies (GWAS), the Soskic group has shown that diverse immune-mediated diseases have distinct genetic patterns that converge on activating the same cells and signalling pathways. Immune-mediated […]
Human Technopole is offering up to 2 fully funded PhD fellowships to young scientists from the national and international community who wish to undertake a doctoral degree in Data Analytics and Decision Sciences on a project focused on Health Data Science or Population and Medical Genomics. We encourage applications from highly motivated graduates with outstanding […]
Human Technopole is looking for enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers interested in applying for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023. Projects should focus on one of the areas of the five HT’s Research Centres: Computational Biology, Structural Biology, Genomics, Neurogenomics and Health Data Science. The objective of PFs is to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. The Postdoctoral Fellowships action targets […]
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 […]
