Dr Gioia Altobelli
  • Senior Research Fellow
  • Research Department of Oncology
  • Cancer Institute
  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

My background is in physics, with subsequent specialization in biophysics, bioinformatics, drug design and genomics. In my first computational biology project, I applied stochastic processes in computational molecular biophysics at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, NCSA, UIUC, IL USA. Before obtaining my PhD in complex systems in post-genomics biology and medicine (ISASUT, 12/2007), I published works in structure-based computer simulation of protein recognition/stability, neurophysics for brain imaging and development of numerical/analytical methods for non-linear systems. All publications , pre- and post- genomics, can be found with author ORCID 0000-0001-9338-3466

Research Summary

A computational biologist with experience in translational research encompassing multiple genome-wide approaches to complex diseases, I have been working with multidisciplinary teams in a project-based fashion since the beginning of 2008. I contributed to the understanding of biological systems and relevant processes, covering transcriptional regulation in cell and animal models as well as human cohorts.  My experience may support: * development of computational frameworks for reliable exploitation of large-scale experimental datasets targeting common diseases ** public health policy-making via interpretation of omics data *** community-driven development of academic curricula focused on omics and big data, forging a meta-language for a new generation of proactive, multidisciplinary professionals of biomedicine **** science and technology communication and publishing ***** knowledge-based and forward-thinking industry, patenting and forensics. Author ORCID 0000-0001-9338-3466
