  • AI Creates New ‘Alarm Bells’ for Prostate Cancer Recurrence

    A study by Human Technopole, the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in London has shown that in prostate cancer the presence in the same tumour of cells with large differences in shape and genetic composition indicates an increased risk of relapse, including after a decade. The study may help doctors better tailor treatment for this disease, adopting more aggressive therapies in cases where these parameters indicate a higher risk of disease recurrence.

Research at HT

Improving human life and technology by investing in human health and prevention research is the ultimate goal of Human Technopole. We need to prevent and cure diseases to allow people of all ages to not only live longer, but also live better.

To accomplish its mission, HT’s research strives to unravel fundamental mechanisms relevant to human physiology and disease using a multi-scale systems biology approach, based on a combination of experimental research and theory, coupled with computational biology and Artificial Intelligence.

Shared Research Infrastructure

To fulfil the needs of the Italian life science research community, HT infrastructure includes 5 National Facilities, serving as technological hubs and incubators for developing and disseminating new tools and methodologies and for carrying out top-level research.

Courses and Conferences

The overarching and inspiring theme for HT’s external training activities is to create at HT a centre of excellence for training promising researchers in the biomedical sciences, while providing broad access to HT’s expertise, methods, and resources to the external community. Courses and conferences are supported by institutional and external funding, and sponsorships are welcome.
