Clelia Peano

I graduated at the University of Parma in Biology, and I obtained my PhD at in Biotechnology from the same university.

I have been a genomic researcher since 2005, leading to an appointment since 2011 as tenured group leader at the Italian’s National Research Council. During this time, I have led successful research programs applying emerging genomic technologies to study molecular processes underpinning severe human diseases, including cardiopathies, solid tumors, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.

Leveraging my extensive genomic expertise, since 2017 I have pivoted to a dual role as researcher and genomic facility manager, initially at Humanitas Research Hospital (2017-2021), and since 2021 as Senior Manager of the High Throughput Genomics Facility at Human Technopole. During this time, I have overseen all stages of set up and implementation of the unit into a fully operational facility which offers a wide range of genomic services and technologies.
I am currently playing a coordinating role in efforts to get the National Facility for Genomics start providing services to the whole Italian Scientific Community.
