HT JOINS EU CONSORTIUM LIFETIME

Thu, Jun 4 2020|

Human Technopole is now an Associate Partner of LifeTime, the pan-European research initiative that aims to revolutionise healthcare by tracking and understanding human diseases at single cell resolution to transform patients’ care and the sustainability of healthcare systems.

Joining the LifeTime community is an important opportunity for Human Technopole to build a strategic network of relevant European partners that share our ambition and goals. 

Human Technopole’s mission is fully aligned with LifeTime’s overarching aim to tackle complex human diseases. Specifically, the three defining pillars of LifeTime (single-cell multiomics, organoids and machine learning-based deconvolution) are represented in HT by the close integration of Centres and Core Facilities featuring leading expertise in these fields.

Together with the University of Milan, the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) and the Sacco Hospital, Human Technopole is already part of the Italian branch of the initiative Lifetime for COVID19, which for the upcoming two years will be led by the Head of our Research Centre for Neurogenomics, Prof. Giuseppe Testa.

The LifeTime consortium gathers over 120 leading scientists from over 90 European research institutes. The University of Milan is the Italian partner of the consortium and other Italian associate partners include the European Institute of Oncology, Fondazione Istituto FIRC di Oncologia Molecolare, the Institute for Biomedical Technologies and the Institute of Photonics and Nanotechnologies of the Italian National Research Council as well as many prominent Italian universities.
