Three high profiles to choose an equally high profile: the new VIMM Scientific Director. The Foundation for Advanced Biomedical Research has chosen Professor Alberto Mantovani, Director of Humanitas Research Institute of Milan, Professor Maria Grazia Roncarolo, Director of the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine of Stanford CA, and Prof. Giuseppe Remuzzi, Director of the Mario Negri Research Institute in Milan.

The three members of the jury will have the task of sifting and examining the applications received in response to the international call published last January on this website and in prestigious national and international journals. Once the screening and pre-selection of candidates will be completed, the commission will send a shortlist to the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Subsequently, the latter will proceed with the appointment of the new Scientific Director.

“We are grateful to Prof. Mantovani, Professor Roncarolo and Prof. Remuzzi for accepting our invitation. We thank them for the support they will give us in choosing the figure called to project the VIMM towards an increasingly important dimension of excellence and internationality “, underlined Prof. Francesco Pagano, President of the Foundation for Advanced Biomedical Research.
