Located inside Milan Innovation District MIND, Human Technopole (HT) is a large-scale, government-funded, research infrastructure that contributes to improving human health and well-being by developing new approaches to personalised and preventive medicine.
Today the institute employs over 350 people, including more than 220 researchers and scientific support staff, of 30 different nationalities, with an average age of 36 years. Over 60% of the research staff joins HT from abroad.
Once fully operational, Human Technopole will employ up to 1,000 scientists, in different fields, including biology, bioinformatics, chemistry, engineering, physics, mathematics, health science and computational and data science, to work together on research topics of biomedical relevance.
With its two state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities and highly qualified scientific staff, HT is expected to be enlisted in the world’s most advanced hubs thanks to the acquisition of exclusive computing, storage and imaging equipment. Genomics studies, big data analysis and new diagnostics techniques will be supported by unique technologies which will be made available to the wider scientific community.
To date Human Technopole has already raised external funding worth 8,7 million euros awarded to the institute's researchers through a number of grants and scholarships from European and international funding institutions.
