5 December – New, important results from the scientists at Human Technopole.
Together with other researchers, Giuseppe Testa – head of the Neurogenomics Centre – discovered the “architect gene” of the face of modern man and provided experimental evidence of how today’s men are born from the same process of domestication of animals. The paper – published in Sciences Advances – is available at: http://bit.ly/38aN16L
In recent days, Human Technopole’s scientific activity has reached Russia. At the Regenerative Medicine meeting, Nereo Kalebic – Group Leader, Neurogenomics Centre – presented his latest findings on human brain development and neurogenesis.
New also from the Centre of Computational Biology. Francesco Iorio – Group Leader, Centre for Computational Biology – has joined the scientific advisory board of the AZ-CRUK Functional Genomics Centre: an initiative for functional genomics that aims to develop new cancer therapies through genetic screening, cancer modalling and big data processing.
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 […]
