Abstract
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 possibilitiesfor 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, has the overarching goal of developing stratified approaches to improve patient care (personalised medicine) and quality of life. Research at the 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 my talk I will introduce the Human Technopole project, outline future plans and how these will contribute to scientific development in Italy and Europe, and present the many opportunities the new institute offers to young scientists.
