Biomedical sciences

The Department of Biomedical Sciences manages the research activity in Biology, Medicine and Public Health. It provides technologies and services to both the public and the private area, with the purpose of promoting knowledge on the fundamental mechanism governing physiological and pathological aspects in living organism, starting from basic research in life sciences to the study of human diseases and of innovative therapeutic interventions. The ultimate aim is to explore new opportunities for ameliorating the health of mankind.

The fundamental activities regard oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, immunology and infectious diseases, epidemiology and health care research, Biology and biomedical technologies. In these areas, some technologies have been developed and they have found a wider use in the different benchmark areas: proteomics, pharmacogenomics, advanced calculus in bioinformatics and system biology, robotic systems for the limbs’ rehabilitation, molecular diagnostics and imaging.
